Studies on wide and stacked high-temperature superconducting (HTS) wires aim to increase the critical current of the wires. This paper describes the design and fabrication of an induced current-based performance measurement system and a critical performance analysis of HTS magnet wires using this system. In the experiment, the induced current, critical current, and joint resistance of stacked HTS wires under charge and discharge conditions were investigated. The results obtained were compared with those achieved using the four-terminal method, which is the conventional measurement method. The measurement system and the results of the critical performance analysis of the HTS wire are discussed in detail.
