Title: Advanced electromagnetic modeling of large-scale high-temperature superconductor systems based on H and T-A formulations
Host: Magnets & Materials Seminar
Abstract: The development of the high-temperature superconductors (HTS) has allowed the emergence of diverse large-scale HTS systems. The finite-element method has been extensively used to solve the H formulation of Maxwell's equations, thus far with great success. The more recently proposed T-A formulation has allowed building more efficient models for systems made of HTS tapes. Both formulations have been successfully applied in conjunction with the homogenization and multi-scaling methods, these advanced methods allow reducing the required computational resources. A new advanced method, called densification, is proposed here. The most important contribution of this work is the comprehensive comparison of the strategies that emerged from the combined use of the two formulations and the three advanced methods.
