The paper reports on experimental and numerical studies of AC loss in a high temperature superconducting coil wound with a Bi2223/Ag tape. A measurement method of the AC loss in the HTS coil by using a power meter is proposed. The AC loss is measured on the test HTS coil made by stacking pancake coils wound with the Bi2223/Ag tape. The AC loss is also calculated using the numerical method developed in our previous work. The measured AC loss is compared with the calculated one. The agreement of measured and calculated data is reasonable and this shows the validity of the proposed measurement method.
