Title: Test Results of High Performance HTS Pancake Coils at 77 K

A series of pancake coils using several kilometers of second generation (2G) (RE)BCO conductor has been fabricated as a part of a R&D program to build a large aperture high field solenoid for energy storage application. This paper discusses the preparation of double pancake coils and the test results at 77 K before assembling the final magnet. These tests played an important role in assuring: the quality of conductors, coil winding and assembly, and integrity of splices within the coils.
