The purpose of this research was to investigate the efficiency of the state-of-the-art quench protection heater technology applied to a high-temperature superconductor (HTS)-based accelerator type magnet. The heater delays, i.e., the time delay between the heater activation and consequent normal zone initiation in the winding, were simulated using the 2-D thermal modelling tool CoHDA, which has been successfully used for low-temperature superconductor (LTS) coils. In addition to the quench onset criterion used for LTS, requiring the cable maximum temperature to reach the current sharing temperature (T cs ), a criterion accounting for the current redistribution w...
