Higher Magnetic field is of great advantage to Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage because it promises a compact device. However, the serious problem of huge electromagnetic forces caused by high magnetic fields and large coil current, still remains. Electromagnetic stresses, reaching as much as several hundred bars, thus become a major factor in determining whether a large sized strong magnetic field system could be established. In order to solve this problem, we propose the force-balanced coil (FBC) concept that reduces the huge centering electromagnetic forces by balancing it with the hoop forces caused by toroidal current. Then we designed and fabricated a small size superconducting FBC system to demonstrate the FBC concept. It was successfully excited up to near rated current. It is shown that the FBC system has a potential for simplifying the supporting structures and making the facility compact.
