Tritium accounting during the first tritium experiment at JETFunded under: FP2-FUSION 10C
This paper summarises the measuring procedures and the results of the tritium accounting carried out in November 1991, during the first tritium experiment at JET. The measurement of the amount of tritium injected into the torus, and of the quantity recovered from the torus and the neutral injector boxes, is described, and the accuracy of the data assessed. The new gas collection system used during the experiment is briefly described. The tritium recovery data taken in the months following the experiment are reviewed, with special attention to the first three weeks after the experiment. The total amount of tritium collected in the gas collection system is compared with the data of tritium release from the torus and the neutral injection boxes. The analysis of the data allows the residual tritium inventory both in the injection system and in the torus to be estimated.
