Publication Abstract: The Jefferson Lab 12 GeV Upgrade will allow the study of the basic properties of the building blocks of matter, how they are formed, how they interact and the forces that mediate these interactions. As part of the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV Upgrade project, the Hall B Upgrade system, also termed CLAS12 detector has been designed to meet the basic requirement to study the structure of nucleons and nuclei. A major focus of the Hall B science program will be to determine the Generalized Parton Distributions. These studies will allow researchers, for the first time, to engage in nuclear tomography, discovering the true three-dimensional structure of the proton and the neutron. The Hall B science program imposes broad requirements for measuring multiple particles over wide kinematic range with excellent resolution in momentum and angles using polarized and unpolarized targets. CLAS12 detector requires two superconducting magnets. One is a magnet system consisting of six superconducting trapezoidal racetrack-type coils assembled in a Toroidal configuration (Torus) and the second is an actively shielded solenoidal magnet (Solenoid). Both the torus and solenoid are located in close proximity to one another and are surrounded by sensitive detectors. This paper investigates the electromagnetic interactions between the two systems during normal operation as well as during various fault scenarios.
