High T/sub c/ superconducting (HTS) (Bi,Pb)/sub 2/Sr/sub 2/Ca/sub 2/ Cu/sub 3/O/sub 10+x/ Ag-clad wire has potential for practical applications in the form of a coil or a winding. This HTS wire has strong magnetic field-dependent and mechanical strain-dependent critical currents, consequently it has a severe problem of critical current degradation when it is used in the form of a coil. To design a winding with this conductor, the critical current degradation has to be identified with relation to the magnetic fields and the winding process. This is important to optimize an appropriate coil winding procedure using this HTS wire. A specially designed noninductive sample has been made with a (Bi,Pb)/sub 2/Sr/sub 2/Ca/sub 2/ Cu/sub 3/O/sub 10+x/ Ag-clad 27-filament wire, and the critical current degradation, which is caused by the magnetic field generated and the mechanical winding procedure used to form a coil, has been separated into two factors accordingly, and discussed in this paper.
