The use of high temperature superconductors for accelerator dipole has been discussed for about twenty years and maybe a little more. Conductors that can potentially be used for accelerator magnets have been available for about fifteen years. These conductors are REBCO tape conductors, which can be wound into coils with no reaction after winding, and BISSCO cable conductors, which require reaction after winding and insulation after reaction in a process similar to Nb3Sn cables. Both conductors are expensive and the process after reacting is expensive. Some unknown factors that remain: Will either conductor degrade in current carrying capacity with repeated cycling like Nb3Sn cables do? The other two issues are problems for both types of HTS conductors and they are; 1) quench protection in the event of a normal region run-away and 2) dealing with the superconducting magnetization inherent with HTS cables and tapes. This paper will discuss the last two issues and maybe will provide a partial solution to these problems.
