Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Total shielding currents of a melt processed bulk high-Tc superconductor (HTS) are evaluated from the measured voltage of a Rogowski coil when a permanent magnet is moved towards the HTS. The total shielding current and the levitation force between the magnet and the HTS show rapid growth and decay depending on the speed of the magnet. The dynamic levitation force and the magnetic relaxation are discussed from the experimental results.
