This paper describes the internal resonance phenomenon of a large scale superconducting coil. The frequency dependence of electric impedance defined at the coil terminal and the voltage distribution of the layer winding were measured at the ITER CS model coil under the superconducting state in advance of the pulse operation test. As a result, large change of the impedance and unbalance of the layer voltage were observed. The AC circuit analysis was carried out in order to evaluate the measurement results and to calculate the voltage of layer insulator. It was concluded that the higher voltage, which may appear on the layer insulation, is about a half of the coil terminal voltage in high frequency.
