The High Magnetic Field Laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences will develop a 40-T hybrid magnet. The superconducting outsert, which consists of a NbTi coil and a Nb3 Sn coil, will provide more than 11 T of central field in a 580-mm bore. The superconducting coils will be wound of cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) and cooled by flowing 4.5-K supercritical helium. A model coil of the Nb3Sn coil has been designed and will be manufactured to develop the technology of cabling, jacketing, winding, heat treatment, etc., and the model coil can also simulate the performance of the Nb3Sn superconducting coil under its operating conditions. This paper gives an overview of the conceptual design for the model coil and predicts its current-sharing temperature (Tcs).
