A 2.5 MJ HTS SMES is being developed as a national program in Korea. This paper presents design results of modular HTS magnets for the 2.5 MJ toroidal SMES. We considered a choice of BSCCO-2223 or ReBCO tapes as the conductors for the HTS magnets of the SMES. Operating temperature was decided to be 20 K which could be accomplished by conduction cooling with a couple of GM cryo-coolers. Key design factors may include minimization of total conductor requirement and low AC loss.
