CHATS on Applied Superconductivity 2015
14 - 16 September 2015, Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna, viale Risorgimento 2, 40136 Bologna - Italy


The CHATS-AS 2015 Workshop will be held at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering of the
University of Bologna, Italy, on September 14 - September 16 2015.

CHATS-AS 2015 will be the eleventh in a series of international workshops that have followed the advancements in the
state-of-the-art of modeling of superconducting systems, from cables to magnets, power generation and transmission
devices, fusion, high-energy physics, and other applications.

The focus in CHATS-AS is on novel principles and tools in engineering design and analysis of superconducting systems.
The Workshop also aims at building bridges between analysis and experiments, in order to validate the sophisticated
analysis tools available with proper data sets.

The CHATS-AS 2015 Workshop welcomes contributions fitting this scope, with a specific interest in the following topics:

  • Quench simulation and analysis for all classes of LTS and HTS magnets (e.g. accelerator, fusion, other
    applications) and devices (e.g. power cables).

  • Quench protection of HTS magnets: novel concepts, models and experiments.

  • Electro-mechanical modeling of Nb3Sn and HTS magnets. Engineering tools for performance extrapolation in the
    20 T range.

  • Multi-scale modeling of cables and magnets made of LTS and HTS materials, and their relation to the strand or
    short-sample performance.

  • Simulation and optimization of large-scale superconducting and cryogenic systems, covering the combination of
    thermo-hydraulics, AC loss, current distribution, field, and operating margin calculations.
