Abstract

Fast cycled superconducting magnets (FCM's) are an option of interest for the long-term consolidation and upgrade plan of the LHC accelerator complex. In the past two years we have conducted an R&D targeted at investigating the feasibility, operational issues and economical advantage of FCM's in the range of 2 T bore field, continuously cycled at 1 Hz. In this paper we report the main results on the development of strands and cables suitable for this application, providing details on the strands tested and the cable manufacturing and performance.
