Abstract
This paper presents the results of magnetic losstests on twisted and untwisted 37 multifilaments tapes exposed to an alternating field at power frequencies. The losses are measured using calorimetric methods, which are capable of measuring losses in short tapes with the accuracy of several microwatts per centimeter of tape. The losses of the tape due to the longitudinal field of the untwisted tape agree well with theoretical calculations. The measurement results on the twisted filament tape, with 50-mm twist pitch, show that the losses are slightly lower than that in the untwisted tape. This is due to the reduction of the coupling losses between the filaments in the tape. It is also shown that in the presence of normal fields, the losses are about one order higher than for longitudinal fields because of the anisotropic properties of the superconducting parts and because of the existence of eddy current loss in the silver sheath.
