  • Content Description: The Westinghouse coil for the Large Coil Program (LCP) at ORNL will use a cable-in-conduit conductor made of copper-stabilized, multifilamentary (MF) Nb/sub 3/Sn strands enclosed in a stainless steel jacket. The operating current will be 16 kA with an 8-T maximum field. The stainless steel jacket provides a channel around the conductor to allow forced cooling by supercritical helium. This study investigates the performance of a subsize conductor similar in construction, but with only one-third as many active strands in the cable.
