The high magnetic field performance of a 40-tape twisted stacked-tape cable (TSTC) conductor made of 4-mm-width 0.1-mm-thick REBCO tapes was successfully tested. The critical current was 6.0 kA, with the n-value of 35, at 4.2 K with a background field of 17 T. No cyclic load effect was observed between 10 and 17 T with the maximum Lorentz load of 102 kN/m. Various issues, such as sample length, nonuniformity of termination resistances, and soldered joint of a coated tape cable, with regard to a TSTC conductor are discussed. Large-scale conductor designs of various scalable TSTC conductors are discussed, taking into account current densities and stabilizers.
