MAST-Upgrade Divertor Facility and Assessing Performance of Long- Legged Divertors

A potentially important feature in a divertor design for a high-power tokamak is an extended and expanded divertor leg. The upgrade to MAST will allow a wide range of such divertor leg geometries to be produced, and hence will allow the roles of greatly increased connection length and flux expansion to be experimentally tested. This will include testing the potential of the Super-X configuration [1]. The design process for the upgrade has required analysis of producing and controlling the magnetic configurations, and has included consideration of the roles that divertor closure and increasing magnetic connection length will play.
