    Abstract

    One of the most promising applications for high temperature superconducting (HTS) material is magnet. HTS magnet is considered to be used in a wide range of applications including MRI, particle accelerator, electrical machine, and etc. HTS rotating machines are mainly utilized for cryo-electrification, i.e. application of superconductivity for modern electrification. One of the main aspects of cryo-electrification is electric aircraft application which is recently enabled by continuous progress in design development of superconducting magnets and HTS machines. This paper discusses the challenges facing a newly developed magnet type, i.e. HTS ring magnet, that being considered in superconducting rotating machine in future electric aircrafts. HTS ring magnet is compact, easy to develop, fault tolerant, and light in weight, and it recently reached to a high level of magnetic field.
