Abstract

Abstract The problem of optimum parameter choice for the superconducting field winding when using the thermosophon cooling method has been discussed. As an optimum criterion, the magnetic flow within the superconducting field winding at a given outer radius of rim cylinder is chosen. The restrictions it imposes on the superconducting field winding cryostabilization and mechanical strength of its supporting elements are taken into consideration. The parameters to be optimized are: the inner and outer radii of the superconducting field winding, superconducting field winding current, ratio of the superconductor area to the matrix area in the multifilamentary composite conductor, cooling channel dimensions, and dimensions of the superconducting field winding supporting elements. The optimum magnetic flows for the stabilized and non-stabilized windings and for windings made of normal metal are compared.
