High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) tapes experiences tension, bending and torsion along with stress due to thermal cycling and electromagnetic forces during operation. This combined effect of mechanical forces, moments and stresses can affect the performance of superconducting tape. In this paper investigation of I-V characteristic of Superpower makes 2G HTS stacked tapes under strain.
