Analysis code for shielding layers of HTS cable, which was taken account of spiral structure of Bi-2223/Ag tape conductors, was developed based on finite element method. The 66 kV class HTS cable, which was fabricated and successfully tested in cooperation of Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) and Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (SEI), was subjected in this study. Electric field vs. current density property was expressed based on percolation depinning model (Yamafuji-Kiss model). Multifilamentary structure of the tapes and spiral structure of the conductors were directly modeled in order to analyze precisely. Systematic analysis results were presented and discussed.
