47th EPS Plasma Physics Virtual Conference, 21-25 June 2021

The disruption mitigation system at ITER will include four shattered pellet injectors (SPI), which will be dedicated to the mitigation of electro-magnetic loads (EML), thermal loads and the avoidance and suppression of runaway electrons. Recently the JETILW was equipped with an SPI with a wide capability. Specifically: pellet diameter d = [4.57, 8.…

31st Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Dubrovnik, Croatia, 20 - 25 September 2020

Plasma Event TRiggering for Alarms (PETRA) is a flexible new system at JET for detecting plasma events to trigger exception handling responses. It provides a platform for all existing and new techniques which involve processing JET real-time data to identify when to change the trajectory of a plasma shot, and reduces the technical cost and risk in …

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 …

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

RACE has been developing a concept design for the remote maintenance system for the EUROfusion DEMO powerplant. Within the DEMO tokamak, tritium breeding blankets will require periodic replacement which is currently designed to utilize the upper vertical ports at the top of the vacuum vessel. This operation will be challenging due to the scale of t…
