Abstract

The percolation model, taking into account the percolative nature of current transport due to anisotropy, is a powerful tool for predicting the field and temperature dependences of critical current in MgB2 superconducting wires. The critical current behaviour measured from MgB 2 wires can be obviously explained by only four fitting parameters, the anisotropy parameter, the pinning force maximum, the upper critical field along the ab-plane, and the percolation threshold. Moreover, the temperature dependence of the upper critical field is further explained by the dirty-limit two-gap theory.
