Abstract

Several sets of parameters have been developed for tokamak reactors that might be available around the year 2050 as a result of the Commission's fusion research programme. One parameter set, based on modest improvements in physics and technology relative to present experience, has been adopted as a reference reactor for use in further studies including the environmental impact of fusion power. The reference reactor parameters have been compared with those of the base case reactor developed in the ESECOM study in the USA in 1987. The computer codes used in the two studies have both been used to generate parameter sets for these two reactors, and differences in resulting parameters and costs are discussed.
