This paper presents the design process and test results of a high-temperature superconducting pulsed-power transformer (HTSPPT). The primary winding of the HTSPPT is constructed out of several double-pancake-type coils connected in series. Every double-pancake-type coil is made of Bi2223/Ag tapes. The secondary winding is constructed out of several single-pancake-type coils made of normal conductors. The configuration of the HTSPPT is designed such that the primary and secondary coils are arranged in interleaving. The testing experiments show that a high-current impulse could be achieved with a small current in the primary, which proves that the designed test circuit and the configuration of HTSPPT are feasible.
