The effect of the configuration of the joint between an ac superconducting cable and a normal conducting plate on the current distribution and the joule loss is investigated by using the 3-D finite element method. It is shown that the concentration of current can be reduced by changing the configuration of joint. The effectiveness of the analysis is verified by measuring the current distribution on the surface of a copper plate and the quenching current
