The motion of magnetic flux invading into the HTS bulk magnets were experimentally studied in their pulsed field magnetization processes. The authors paid attention to the effects of the shapes of the pre-magnetized trapped flux distributions before the successive field applications by means of varying the M-shaped distribution. We estimated the differences of the magnetic flux motions between the Dy123 and Gd123 systems, which might have different Jc properties of each sample. As for the Dy123 system, the increase of remaining flux in the periphery region of the M-shaped distribution resulted in the decrease of flux-trapping according to the promotion of flux invasion. On the other hand, trapped flux density has been raised to 3.4 T owing to the effective suppression of flux invasion for the Gd123 bulk magnet. The experiments showed that the peak heights and the positions of the formerly trapped M-shaped fluxes precisely affect the heat generation and the trapped field performance.
