A superconducting magnet system has been designed and constructed; it now operates to a field of 17.5 Tesla. The system consists of an outer Nb3Sn solenoid with a 160 mm bore producing 13.5 T, and an inner V3Ga solenoid with a 31 mm bore producing an incremental 4 T. Electrical transients were monitored in the outer magnet during normal transition and compared with predictions. The inner magnet operates close to the critical current of the V3Ga as measured in small coil tests. The magnet system was driven normal several times at a stored energy level of approximately 1.8 Megajoules, activating protective circuitry, designed to safely dissipate the energy released.
