Feasibility studies on applying high-temperature superconductors (HTS) to the heliotron-type fusion energy reactor FFHR are being carried out. Using HTS, we consider that the three-dimensional helical coils with a ~40 m diameter can be constructed without preparing a huge winding machine. A practical method for realizing this concept is proposed. The electromagnetic stress inside the helical coil packs is examined using an FEM analysis for double-pancake windings. The effect of error magnetic field generated by the shielding currents in HTS tapes is also examined.
