Many papers report the AC transport current loss characteristics in HTS coils, which occur because the HTS tapes in the coil transport a current in a magnetic field generated by the currents in adjacent tapes. We previously reported our experimental results on the loss from HTS tape in an AC and DC mixed electro-magnetic condition which consists of the DC offset transport current, AC transport current and AC magnetic field. Losses were measured in the same segment by the electric and calorimetric methods, and we established the possibility of measuring the loss using the electric method in the AC and DC mixed electro-magnetic condition.
