Abstract

This work presents a method to calculate AC losses in thin conductors such as the commercially available second generation superconducting wires through a multiscale meshing technique. The main idea is to use large aspect ratio elements to accurately simulate thin material layers. For a single thin superconductor, several standard test cases are simulated including transport current, externally applied magnetic field and a combination of both. The results are in good agreement with recently published numerical simulations and show even faster time to solution. A couple of examples involving several thin conductors in different circumstances are also shown.
