Accurate prediction of the transient and steady-state behaviour of the hydrogen isotope distillation system is important for the assessment of tritium inventory dynamics in the fusion plant, as well as for the on-line control of the separation cascade. This paper presents a methodology for the development of reduced-order models of hydrogen isotope distillation that show very good agreement with experimental data, while reducing the required computation time by approximately one or two orders of magnitude, when compared with full-scale, rigorous models. This can be a very important computational tool, especially for the incorporation of hydrogen isotope distillation models in dynamic simulation codes of the overall fuel system.
