Title Superconductivity - Part 8: AC loss measurements - Total AC loss measurement of Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconducting wires exposed to a transverse alternating magnetic field by a pickup coil method
Project Number 14860
Abstract/Scope Specifies the measurement method of total AC losses by the pickup coil method in Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconducting wires exposed to a transverse alternating magnetic field. The losses may contain both hysteresis and coupling losses. The standard method to measure only the hysteresis loss in DC or low-sweep-rate magnetic field is specified in EN 61788-13.

Normative reference (6) IEC 60050-815:2000

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
