Investigation into the use of solid nitrogen to create a "thermal battery" for cooling a portable high-temperature superconducting magnet

Abstract:

The design of a portable, "stand-alone" cooling system, for use with a high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet, is discussed. The HTS magnet is used to propel a magnetohydrodynamically powered model boat (approximately 120cm × 60cm). The aim of this investigation was to establish the suitability of solid nitrogen for use in the stand-alone cooling system, and determine the optimum method for exploiting its cooling power. It was found that obtaining good thermal contact between solid nit...
