Since March 2010 the preliminary design of the ITER ICRF Antennas have been developed by CYCLE, a consortium consisting of IPP (Garching), CCFE (Culham), CEA (Cadarache), Politecnico di Torino(Torino) and LPPERM/KMS (Brussels). This paper describes the steps taken to develop the present geometry of the triplet pair Strap Housing Module from a therm…

The CYCLE consortium has been designing the ITER ICRF antenna since March 2010, supported by an F4E grant. Following a brief introduction to the consortium, this paper: describes the present status and layout of the design; highlights the key mechanical engineering features; shows the expected impact of cooling and radiation issues on the design an…

An investigation is presented of the effect of an error field on the growth of a resistive wall mode (RWM). This issue is of importance to many toroidal confinement devices, but particularly to the proposed International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) [ITER Physics Basis, Nucl. Fusion 39 , 2175 (1999)], where if advanced tokamak performa…

Previous observations that suggest a substantial role for nondiffusive energy transport in tokamaks subjected to off-axis electron cyclotron heating (ECH) are compared to the output from a sandpile model. The observations considered include local and global aspects of temperature profile evolution in the DIII-D [for example, C. C. Petty and T. C. L…
