Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of the effects of electromagnetic transients on the tritium breeding blanket and vacuum containment structure of the INTOR reactor. The analysis is performed using two computer programs both of which are based on the lumped parameter or circuit method. The calculations investigate the effects of the breeding blanket and vacuum containment on the penetration of an external vertical field and the effects on the blanket and vacuum containment of a plasma disruption. Included also is an analysis of the passive stabilization requirements of the breeding blanket which is needed because of the unstable nature of the elongated INTOR plasma. Detailed variations in the design of the two components are used to illustrate the effects of different conductivity and the presence of access ports on the electromagnetic effects.
