Flux Pinning in a type 2 SC Using an AC Electromagnet

When a supercooled type two superconductor is subjected to a static magnetic field, the superconductor pins to the flux of the field (the mixed-state meissner effect is apparent).

What happens if it is subjected to a continuously changing magnetic field, assuming the superconductivity takes place after the field is introduced (flux already passed through before the superconductor became superconducting, which with DC current would result in a stronger pinning force)?

What would happen if the changing field is not sinusoidal, only changing slightly without ever reaching 0v?

What do you mean by supercooled (which applies to water vapor)? I assume you just mean that it's superconducting? If the field strength changes slowly enough, then you can treat it as though it is a DC field at every time.
