A 17 T high-temperature superconducting two-coil magnet (insert) to be operated in a 15 T low-temperature superconducting multisection magnet (outsert) is the most demanding part of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory all-superconducting 32 T magnet system. The HTS coils are of the pancake type and to be wound with REBCO coated conductors/tapes manufactured by SuperPower, Inc. The distribution of AC losses in the HTS windings during the magnet charging/discharging process are computed and analyzed with due regard for the AC loss density dependence on the magnetic field and the field angle. The calculations are based on the measured magnetization of a representative sample against magnetic field and field angle. The results enable determination of heat load on the magnet and its cryogenic system. Since the magnet is of the pool-cooled type, a related helium vapor bubble problem can develop owing to the high field and field gradients, and the diamagnetic susceptibility of helium.
