Electromagnetic forces on ITER first wall and blanket
In tokamak fusion devices electromagnetic transients occur during normal and off-normal operation conditions (e.g. start-up, plasma disruption). As a consequence, eddy currents and related electrodynamic forces are induced in the conductive structures surrounding the plasma. The behaviour of the first wall/blanket system during plasma disruption events has been investigated within the framework of a study contract between ENEA and the University of Napoli. The analyses have been performed by using the CARIDDI finite element code, assuming the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) plasma scenarios and geometry as a reference.
