Title: Electromagnetic Interaction between the Component Coils of Multi-Plex Magnets

Ultra-high field pulsed magnets are usually designed as a group of nested, concentric coils driven by separated power sources to reduce the required driving voltages and to distribute the mechanical load and to reduce the driving voltages. Since the magnet operates in a fast transient mode, there will be strong and complicated electromagnetic couplings between the component coils. The high eddy currents generated in the reinforcement shells of the component coils during the pulses also strongly affect these couplings. Therefore, understanding the electromagnetic interaction between the component coils will allow safer, more optimized design and operation of our magnets. As a result, this paper will focus on our finite element modeling and experimental results for the electromagnetic interactions between the component coils of the 100-T nondestructive magnet and 80-T duplex magnet at our facility.
