This paper presents our analysis of the output characteristics of a high-temperature superconductor (HTS) coil depending on the turn-to-turn contact resistance. Important design factors were investigated by taking into account the turn-to-turn contact resistance based on the analysis results. Analyses were performed on five self-fabricated coil models with different turn-to-turn contact resistances. To consider only the turn-to-turn contact resistance, we used a first-generation HTS BSCCO wire with simpler architecture and mechanical properties than the second-generation HTS wire. From this study, it was confirmed by experiment that as the turn-to-turn contact resistance decreases, the electrical stability increases but the output efficiency decreases compared with the input.
