In most power applications, the superconducting tapes carry AC transport currents and are exposed to applied AC or/and DC fields with different orientations. Because of the anisotropy of high temperature superconductors, AC losses depend on both the strength and the orientation of the magnetic field. To achieve high current carrying capacity, several tapes are often stacked. Thus an estimation of AC losses in stacked tapes is necessary for the design of superconducting devices. Here, AC transport losses in single, double- and triple-stacked Bi2223/Ag tapes were measured under different magnetic fields. The measurements were carried out at 77 K with the field angle between the tape surface and the direction of magnetic field varied from 0° to 90°. The experimental results on the angular dependence of the AC losses are reported and analyzed.
