Status of Conductor Qualification for the ITER Central Solenoid


The ITER central solenoid (CS) must be capable of driving inductively 30 000 15 MA plasma pulses with a burn duration of 400 s. This implies that during the lifetime of the machine, the CS, comprised of six independently powered coil modules, will have to sustain severe and repeated electromagnetic cycles to high current and field conditions. The design of… (More)
