Abstract

The Bi-2212 round wire has a multifilamentary structure, and the use of numerical method to study ac loss of such multifilamentary superconducting wire requires a long calculation time and large memory. Adopting a homogenization method at low frequency to study the ac loss of multifilamentary structural wire/tape has been proven to have high enough accuracy and can save a lot of calculation time. With the expansion of the application range of superconducting materials, however, superconducting power devices exceeding the frequency of tens of kHz have huge potential applications in the future such as wireless power transfer. Therefore, it is necessary to study the applicability of the homogenization model at high frequencies. This article mainly presents an ac loss numerical study of Bi-2212 round wire at wider frequency (50 Hz-500 kHz) by homogenization method. The homogenization is achieved by two different methods. The first method is to treat the superconducting bundle and the Ag matrix between the bundles as a superconducting domain (bundle-matrix homogenized model, BHM). The second method is to regard the Ag matrix between the superconducting filaments and the filaments as a superconducting domain (filament-matrix homogenized model, FHM). In order to evaluate the feasibility of the two different homogenization methods, we compare the calculation results of the two different homogenization models with the original model, OM. The results show that the FHM can effectively improve the calculation speed while satisfying the high calculation accuracy. This conclusion can be used to quickly evaluate the ac energy loss of large-scale superconducting devices at wider frequencies.
