This paper presents the results of experimental research on the evolution of the set of high strength and electrical properties of Cu-Ag (3-15 wt.%) alloys. Continuous melting and casting process of rods and the drawing process of wires using pre- and inter-operation of multi-stage heat treatment in order to improve the mechanical (UTS=900-1600 MPa) and electrical (63-90 % in IACS scale) properties of circular and profiled cross-section wires has been presented. Metallographic analysis for casts, drawn wires and wires after heat treatment was performed with the use of SEM and TEM microscopy presented in the paper. Effect of different kind of microstructure and the value of deformation on electrical conductivity of the wires during low temperature tests were presented. Model calculations and a construction of the electromagnet coils made of wires with Cu-Ag alloys and the results of the tests carried out at cryogenic temperature has been also shown.
