In this study, empirical and numerical analyses on the screening current-induced field (SCIF) characteristics of a non-insulated (NI) GdBCO-coated conductor single-pancake coil were conducted. Charge and discharge tests were carried out to induce an SCIF in the NI test coil. The SCIF in the NI coil was identified by comparison between the measured and calculated magnetic fields. The experimental results exhibit an increase of the SCIF with increasing an operating current, as well as a logarithmic decay of the SCIF as a function of time. Moreover, the SCIF was not affected by the slow discharge of the NI coil. The estimation of the SCIF based on the critical-state model in a thin film using the finite element method was in fairly good agreement with the experimental results.
