Fabrication experiences and operative characteristics of the U. S. SCMC superconducting dipole magnet for MHD research

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The U.S. SCMS superconducting dipole magnet system consists of the superconducting magnet and its cryostat, a helium liquifier and refrigerator/liquifier facility, helium storage dewars, the transfer line, power supply, and a complete system for magnet instrumentations and control. The magnet system has been designed and built by Argonne National Laboratory. The entire magnet system was successfully tested to full design field in May 1977. It was then safely delivered to Moscow in June 1977, and the first energization of the magnet system is expected in early August 1977. The magnet design and the coil cryostability are reviewed; and the experiences ... continued below
