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

The Chinese Fusion Engineering Test Reactor (CFETR) bridges the gap between ITER and a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). The primary objectives of CFETR are: demonstrate tritium self-sufficiency, ~1GW fusion power, operate in steady-state and have a duty cycle of 0.3-0.5 [1]. CFETR is in the pre-conceptual design phase and is currently envis…

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 …

27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

The ability to describe the essential physics and technology elements needed to robustly simulate the operation of ITER is critical to being able to model the plasma scenarios that will run in ITER. In this paper, the Integrated Modelling & Analysis Suite (IMAS) is used to simulate the 15 MA DT baseline scenario operation, including a descripti…
