Abstract

The Joint European Torus now nearing completion of the construction phase near Abingdon in England is an experiment on a large scale. It purpose is the study of plasma physics and nuclear fusion. JET itself will never produce electric power from nuclear fusion but the work done over the next few years will pave the way for the eventual introduction of commercial fusion power reactors. Dr E. Bertolini, Head of Power Supplies at JET Joint Undertaking, here summarises JET in relation to fusion research taking place in other parts of the world, and the accompanying articles cover in more detail the construction of the experimental Tokamak and the provision of power supplies.
