To optimize pulse field magnetization processes for high-temperature superconducting (HTS) bulk magnets, it is important to control the magnetic field amplitude and the driving temperature. Many publications have reported on the experimental and numerical results of the pulsed-field magnetization method. In the numerical method, the HTS bulk properties are modeled to simplify the calculations, examples being the Bean model and the Kim model, etc. During pulsed-field magnetization the critical current density in the HTS bulk changes dramatically due to the magnetic field and temperature rise induced by the ac losses. For these reasons these properties are key to the analysis of the pulsed-field magnetization process, which is calculated using the measured practical HTS bulk properties, and these results show different temperature rise and trapped magnetic field characteristics. We assumed that HTS bulk has intrinsic deterioration in practice. Therefore, we recalculated using the adjusted parameters, and these analytic results correspond with the experimental results.
