In this paper, we investigate the thermal runaway characteristics of a BSCCO HTS single pancake coil conduction-cooled with a 4 K-GM cryo-cooler system. We also evaluate the static and dynamic characteristics of the HTS coil by measuring the temporal evolution of the temperature and the voltage for steady current and the typical current patterns of the load fluctuation compensation at different ambient temperatures T0 in the range of 20-50 K. Moreover, we experimentally discuss the criterion for monitoring the conduction-cooled HTS SMES system during compensating operation for load fluctuations.
