This paper presents experimental and analytical studies on the time-varying behavior of an NI (no-insulation) high-temperature superconductor pancake coil, alone or magnetically coupled to an external coil. An NI coil and another insulated coil (as an external), both of identical winding i.d. and number of turns, were fabricated. Another external coil used in this study was a 300-mm/5-T low-temperature superconductor magnet. An equivalent circuit model is proposed to simulate the NI coil, and the external coil, under time-varying conditions. Good agreement between experiment and simulation shows that the proposed equivalent circuit model is valid to characterize the time-varying electromagnetic behavior of an NI coil, alone or magnetically coupled to an external coil.
