Abstract

TORE-SUPRA IS A TOKOMAK CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION ON THE SITE OF CADARACHE NUCLEAR RESEARCH CENTRE FOR THE EURATOM ASSOCIATION - CEA. IT IS A MACHINE WHICH INTEGRATES WITHIN ITS TECHNOLOGY ALL THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND INSTALLATION OF SUPRACONDUCTIVE COILS AND THE CRYOGENIC SYSTEM ASSOCIATED WITH THIS. TORE-SUPRA WILL ENABLE SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE TO BE GAINED IN PREPARATION FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF MACHINES FOR THE PHYSICS OF PLASMAS AND CONTROLLED FUSION. THE USE OF SUPRACONDUCTIVE COILS MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO STUDY MAGNETIC CONFINEMENT AND STABILITY ON SOME LONG PULSES (MORE THAN 30S), THE INFLUENCE OF THE IMPURITIES AND THE EFFICIENCY OF ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF HEATING (INJECTION OF NEUTRONS AND BY RADIO FREQUENCIES).
