During ITER operations the water coolant flowing through components such as the first wall, blanket modules, divertor cassettes and vacuum vessel will become activated by high energy neutrons. Two key neutron-induced reactions will occur with oxygen in the water producing the radioactive isotopes, N-16 and N-17, which have relatively short half-…

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

Disruption prediction and avoidance is critical in ITER and reactor-scale tokamaks to maintain steady plasma operation and to avoid damage to device components. The present status and results from the physics-based disruption event characterization and forecasting (DECAF) research effort are shown for multiple tokamak devices. Present analysis of K…
