    Recently, the properties of high temperature superconducting tapes have been in advance and high temperature superconducting magnets have been constructed and demonstrated. However, the high temperature superconducting tapes have different thermal characteristics compared with low temperature superconducting wires. Therefore, it is necessary to consider these characteristics of high temperature superconducting tapes at the magnet design stage. We proposed an optimal design method for superconducting coils wound with Bi2223/Ag tapes. In this paper, the configuration of 72 MJ SMES coils wound with Bi2223/Ag tapes are optimized.
