A general stellarator version of the systems code PROCESS

We present modifications of the systems code Process that allow for a description of a general class of stellarator power plants, based on a stellarator coil-set and the respective MHD plasma equilibrium. For this, we modify Process such that each stellarator configuration enters the systems code via a set of effective parameters which can be calculated in advance before using them in new scaling models in Process. Further, we show two applications of the new Process version: We apply the code to, firstly, three reactor-size stellarator devices with different aspect ratios, and secondly, to three coil-sets optimized for the same equilibrium with varying coil numbers as obtained by stellarator optimization.
