Short sample HTS power cable composed of multiple 344C-2G strands and designed to energize a fast-cycling dipole magnet was exposed to a sweeping magnetic field in the (2-20) T/s ramping rate. The B-field orientation toward the HTS strands wide surface was varied from to -4° to 8°, in steps of 10. The test arrangement allowed measurements of combined hysteresis and eddy current power losses of the cable assembly. For the validity of these measurements, the power losses of a short sample cable composed of multiple LTS wire strands were also performed and compared with the known data. The test arrangement of the power cable is described, and the test results are compared with the projections for the eddy and hysteresis power losses using fine details of the test cable structures.
