Abstract : The report provides weight estimates for possible configurations which may be used in one of these subsystems, that which is devoted to energy storage. For the purposes of this study, it will be assumed that the energy storage subsystem consists of three components: (1) the cryogenic coils, (2) the cryogen and (3) the dewar. The limits of the subsystem are the electrical terminals entering and leaving the dewar. All other components are assumed to be located in other subsystems. The method of determining the weights of the components of the subsystem will be discussed, followed by a discussion of the manner in which subsystems were optimized. The section closes with tables giving characteristics of weight optimized systems for a range of energy, pulse length, total pulses, wire diameter, and copper to superconductor ratio.
