Abstract: Dynamic resistance is observed in type-II superconductors carrying a DC transport current while simultaneously exposed to an alternating magnetic field. The appearance of a nonzero resistance is attributed to the interaction between the transport current and moving fluxons. This effect is relevant to many superconductor applications such as high-temperature-superconductor (HTS) flux pumps, DC / AC magnets, synchronous machines, and persistent current switches. Here, we present a finite element method (FEM) ana…
