For large power application using high-Tc superconducting (HTS) tape, parallel face-to-face stacked tape conductor should to be used because single tape is limited in flowing of demanded large current, also, appropriate distance between tapes in stacked tape conductor is needed for high voltage insulation. The stacked tape conductor has different characteristics compared with single tape because of screening effect. In general situation, HTS tapes are used by winding in coil shape, so, magnetic fields generated in the coil are operated as external fields and have various direction to each tape in the coil. In this paper, we research the magnetization loss in stacked tape conductor exposed to external magnetic fields having various direction and compare measured results of stacked tape with those of single tape, and we also present influences of insulation thickness between tapes in stacked tape conductor by comparison to the measured results for noninsulation stacked tape. We solve the magnetization loss in stacked tape conductor by finite element method to examine the experimental results.
