We study the limit state of the inhomogeneous Ginzburg-Landau model as the Ginzburg-Landau parameter , and derive an equation to describe the limit state. We analyze the properties of solutions of the limit equation, and investigate the convergence of (local) minimizers of the Ginzburg-Landau energy with large . Our results verify the pinning effect of an inhomogeneous superconductor with large .
