TECHNICAL PROGRESS REPORT ON WENDELSTEIN VII-A-S
The modification of the Wendelstein experiment at Garching into an advanced version with modular design was approved in 1982, after a planning time of one and a half year. The essential components of the new Wendelstein VII- AS device are: - A modular field system instead of a helix and TF system, consisting of 45 non-planar coils. - A modular vacuum vessel, adapted to the coil system. - An additional TF system for t-variation, consisting of 10 plane coils. - A structure shell for the modular field coils so that the vessel is free of coil forces. These components and other auxiliary equipment are under production in industries at the time of this workshop. A prototype piece of the vessel has been built and successfully tested. A second prototype coil for the modular field will be delivered in October 1984, after the first one failed because of an interturn shortcircuit. Adequate improvement in quality control and assurance was introduced for series production.
