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

Systems codes assess the viability of fusion reactor designs by using simplified models for the entire reactor system that allow for the exploration of large areas of parameter space. However, every design will have an associated uncertainty that arises from the accuracy of the models used, the assumptions made and the values of input parameters ad…
