Bi2−xPbxCa2Sr2Cu3Oy compounds with (x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.25, 0.3 and 0.4) were prepared by solid state reaction. The resistance and inductance results showed that transition temperature increases with increase in lead concentration. The highest value of Tc(0) observed is 109 K for Bi1.70Pb0.30Ca2Sr2 · Cu3Oy. The change of inductance per unit volume at liquid nitrogen temperature as a function of composition showed maximum change in x = 0.30 Pb‐doped sample. The results showed that the inductance change is maximum in samples which also showed highest Tc.
