We have investigated the stability of 2.0 GJ toroidal HTS-SMES, which consists of 90 element coils wound from YBCO tape. If one or more element coils are quenched, the storage energy reduces due to change of the magnetic field distribution. A series of quench for some element coils may occur, when the energy of the quenched coil cannot be consumed adequately. The simultaneous quench of some element coil may cause the system down. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the simultaneous quench properties.
