Current distribution in Bi-2223 multifilamentary tapes with inter-filament barrier is numerically evaluated for the application of an alternating transport current. In the case of barrier materials with an infinite resistivity, the current distribution can be determined with a lumped parameter circuit model including the inductances and resistances of all the filaments. The mutual inductance between a pair of filaments is obtained by estimating their geometric mean distance. The power-law model is also assumed to take into account the effect of resistance in each filament. The influences of the silver ratio and filament number in the tape wire on the current distribution are discussed systematically as well as the power index and frequency.
