A formulation for the computation of AC losses in technical HTS conductors by using commercial FEM packages developed for two-dimensional computation of electromagnetic problems is presented. The formulation takes into account the real current density-electric field characteristic of a conductor and the spatial dependence of the current density. Having presented the formulation, example runs comparing transport current loss behaviour between HTS and LTS conductors are given.
