A 1.5 T superconducting MRI magnet has been developed in our laboratory. A passive quench protection system is employed to avoid the damage through the quench event. The coils are subdivided into several groups and a heater network is implemented accordingly. With the control volume method, the numerical model of the quench time is introduced. Different design schemes of the heater strip are compared. The simulation results of currents and voltages are illustrated and the temperature rise of the coils and the heaters are discussed.
