A heat-shrink tube insulation for second-generation high-Temperature superconducting (2G HTS) coils is studied experimentally in this paper. The insulation can be used to prevent the delamination of 2G HTS due to epoxy impregnation. According to the experiment results, the insulated coil shows no degradation before and after the epoxy impregnation. To validate the performance of 2G HTS coils with the heat-shrink insulation, we measured the transport loss, magnetization loss and total loss of a 2G HTS coil. The study demonstrates the feasibility of the heat-shrink tube insulation method for electrical applications.
