Abstract: Compared with traditional blazing furnace, the Continuous Casting-Direct Rolling is an advanced manufacturing steel technology, which can reduce energy waste, decrease pollution and enhance efficiency. The characteristics of steels during induction heating are complex, the change of material properties with temperature makes exact analysis methods very difficult to implement. Therefore, a powerful computer aided numerical tool (i.e., finite difference analysis) is selected to numerically model the induction heating process in this paper. The mathematic model coupling with electromagnetic field and thermal field was established, and it was solved by finite difference method (FDM), thus the slab temperature distribution and its variation with time were obtained, and the characteristics in whole induction heating process were studied. To validate the program feasible, the results were evaluated and compared with experiment results, which showed that the simulation results are reliable and effective. The skin effect in heating process from the two results was studied and demonstrated, the temperature change caused by different parameters such as the induced power intensity and the corner radian were also presented, which indicate that the slab temperature can be heated uniformly through adjusting these parameters, thus the continuous casting slab can meet the rolling requirement.

Abstract: The AC loss calculation is crucial for the thermal analysis of the High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnet. Generally, the critical state model is used to calculate the AC loss value of the HTS conductor with Finite Element Method (FEM). The mesh of the model have a large impact both on the convergence and the accuracy in calculation processes. In this paper, we investigate the effect of different meshes on the AC loss calculation of HTS conductors using a second generation tape model. Both triangular and quadrangle element with fix number of elements and predefined distribution type meshes have been used. The results illustrates that quadrangle with geometric sequence is the best choice when calculating the AC loss in HTS tape.

Abstract: In high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet design, it well known that the critical current (Ic) is sensitive to the direction of the local magnetic field. The perpendicular magnetic field component to the face of tape have a larger effect on the Ic of a HTS tape than the parallel component. Thus in HTS magnet design, the magnetic field distribution is the first considering factor. This work presents a HTS magnet design using genetic algorithm to obtain the object. When the length of the tape is certain, the results show that the process gives the optimal number of the double pancake and the inner radius of the magnet.
