Abstract: The heat is generated inside the stack of superconducting tapes mounted on the surface of the electrical machine rotor during its operation and magnetization. Cooling of such stack presents challenges because of the layered structure of both tape, and stack. Moreover, the tapes should be electrically isolated to minimize the AC losses, that assumes gluing them, rather than soldering. The calculations consider a conductive heat dissipation also through the rotor iron. Results show that: liquid nitrogen provides an effective cooling; the temperature of the stack shows complex distribution patterns with the gaseous coolant. Additional preventive measures were analyzed to keep the stack operational in vacuum conditions.
