The Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) device has a fully superconducting magnet system consisting of 16 Toroidal Field (TF) and 14 Poloidal Field (PF) coils. For the test of the KSTAR cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC), an ambient magnetic field of ±8 T with a maximum change rate of 20 T/s is required and a background-field magnet system is being developed for the Samsung Superconductor Test Facility (SSTF). The CICC for PF1-5 is used as the conductor for background-field coils to check the validity of the PF CICC design. Two pieces of cables have been fabricated and the cable has the length of 870 m and the diameter of 20.3 mm. Pitches are 40, 80, 145, and 237 mm at each cabling stage. The void fraction of the CICC is expected to be more than 36%.
