46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Spherical Tokamaks (STs) could provide a route towards a compact fusion reactor due to advantageous properties such as high plasma beta. A GW-scale ST plasma is explored where Q=10 and R=2.5m. In this design 110 MW of NBI is needed to provide 9 MA of noninductive current, where the remaining 12 MA is pressure driven. To penetrate into the core a 1 …

14th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT-14) Budapest,Hungary, 22-27 September 2019

Spherical Tokamaks offer a number of potential advantages for a future fusion power plant. They have a high ratio of thermal to magnetic field pressure (beta) and strong flows, either of which could result in reduced turbulence. Fewer Toroidal Field (TF) coils and a different geometry offers the potential for new methods of remote maintenance …
