    ITER is the world’s largest fusion experiment. Thirty-five nations are collaborating to build and operate the ITER Tokamak, the most complex machine ever designed, to prove that fusion is a viable source of large-scale, safe, and environmentally friendly energy for the planet.   The 12th Joint Workshop on Electron Cyclotron Emission and Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (EC) was held in Aix-en-Provence (France) from May 13 to 16, This workshop was concerned with the interaction of electromagnetic waves and hot plasmas, a subject of great importance in the framework of research on controlled thermonuclear. EAST tokamak is designed on the basis of the latest tokamak achievements of the last century, aiming at the world fusion research forefront. Its mission is to conduct fundamental physics and engineering researches on advanced tokamak fusion reactors with a steady, safe and high performance, to provide a scientific base for experimental reactor design and construction, and .   The first will be the steady-state power, drawing about MW of electricity. This occurs always, during the startup phase, the fusion phase, and even when the reactor is not operating. The power is necessary for a variety of essential reactor systems such as liquid-helium refrigerators, water pumps, vacuum pumps, temperature controls for the.

Division of Magnetic Confinement Systems,]. stability, and multiple current drive systems for profile control. Given this background, what are the opportunities for steady state tokamak research today.

First, existing tokamaks can continue their efforts to sustain high performance modes in the correct parameter regimes for times as long as their magnet and current drive systems can operate. Three modes of current drive operation in a tokamak — continuous, cyclic, and rfinitiated-are studied for air core and iron core transformer.

It is found that the air core transformer is in general more flexible than the iron core transformer for current drive by: 4. SST-1 (steady state superconducting tokamak) is a plasma confinement experimental device in the Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), an autonomous research institute under Department of Atomic Energy, belongs to a new generation of tokamaks with the major objective being steady state operation of an advanced configuration ('D' Shaped) plasma.

It has been Type: Tokamak. Introduction. Inductive current drive in tokamaks is inherently pulsed, with pulse duration limited by the available poloidal flux.

tokamak[′täkə‚mak] (plasma physics) A device for confining a plasma within a toroidal chamber, which produces plasma temperatures, densities, and confinement times greater than that of any other such device; confinement is effected by a very strong externally applied toroidal field, plus a weaker poloidal field produced by a toroidally directed.

A tokamak (Russian: Токамáк) is a device which uses a Steady-state current drive in tokamaks workshop summary book magnetic field to confine a hot plasma in the shape of a tokamak is one of several types of magnetic confinement devices being developed to produce controlled thermonuclear fusion ofit is the leading candidate for a practical fusion reactor.

steady-state operation in RS mode with Heff= and Q= It is found that the position of the tansport barrier depends on the fusion power and it is somewhat insensitive to the external current drive. In both ELMy H mode and RS mode, the local heating in the region of low diffusivity is found beneficial to improve the plasma performance.

In summary, a system code based on an established physics model has been developed and used to identify and quantify the main parameters that drive the performance of steady state tokamak pilot plants and reactors, and the main findings have been supported by analysis of the relevant tokamak physics equations.

A critical issue for sustaining high performance, negative central shear (NCS) discharges is the ability to maintain current distributions that are maximum off axis. Sustaining such hollow current profiles in steady state requires the use of non-inductively driven current sources.
