Reference EN 61788-10:2006
Title Superconductivity - Part 10: Critical temperature measurement - Critical temperature of composite superconductors by a resistance method
Project Number 16732
Abstract/Scope This part of IEC 61788 specifies a test method for the resistive determination of the critical temperature of composite superconductors for industrial use. The composite superconductors covered in this standard include Cu/Nb-Ti, Cu/Cu-Ni/Nb-Ti and Cu-Ni/Nb-Ti composite superconductors, Cu/Nb3Sn and Cu/Nb3Al composite superconductors, and metal-sheathed MgB2 composite superconductors, and metal-stabilized Bi-system oxide superconductors and Yttrium- or rare-earth-based coated conductors that have a monolithic structure and a shape of round, flat or square wire containing mono- or multi-cores of superconductors.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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