We analyse the issues of quench propagation in the NbTi Poloidal Field Conductor Insert (PFCI), recently tested at JAEA Naka, Japan. The simulation tools Mithrandir, already validated against data from previous Nb3Sn Insert Coils, and M3, implementing a more detailed thermal-hydraulic description of the CICC cross section, are used. The results of the analysis are reported in the paper and compared with experimental data, with particular attention to NbTi versus Nb3Sn features and to the effects of different model assumptions.
