“PROCESS”: Systems studies of spherical tokamaks

Preparing systems codes for power plant conceptual design

As power plant design programmes approach the transition between the pre-conceptual and conceptual design phases, the systems code PROCESS has been improved to incorporate more detailed plasma

Sensitivity analysis of fusion power plant designs using the SYCOMORE system code

A full set of sensitivity methods and their application on a ITER and a DEMO design will be presented, discussing both the statistical methods behaviors and the physical results.

DEMO reactor design using the new modular system code SYCOMORE

A demonstration power plant (DEMO) will be the next step for fusion energy following ITER. Some of the key design questions can be addressed by simulations using system codes. System codes aim to

Uncertainty analysis of an SST-2 fusion reactor design

Towards a fusion reactor: integration of physics and technology

A fusion power plant can only exist with physics and technology acting in synchrony, over space (angstroms to tens of metres) and time (femtoseconds to decades). Recent experience with the European

Commercialization of Fusion Power Plants

With the ITER project entering the second half of the construction phase and various national and international plans for fusion prototype power plants being in early to advanced stages, fusion has

A fusion power plant can only exist with physics and technology acting in synchrony, over space (angstroms to tens of metres) and time (femtoseconds to decades). Recent experience with the European

Comparison of the Process Systems Code With the SONIC Divertor Code

In a demonstration (DEMO) reactor, mitigation of the large heat load on the divertor target to the below material and engineering limits is a key requirement for operation. Systems modeling is used
