We have suggested that non-uniform currents occur due to certain design parameters, for example a combination of cabling pitches, in a previous study. In the present study, we evaluate the occurrences of noon-uniform current distributions in terms of design parameters, i.e., the combination of cabling pitches, winding methods (solenoidal and pancake winding) and cross-sectional shape of the cable by numerical analyses. Finally, some basic design concepts to solve this problem are proposed.
