Automatic optimization procedure for stellarator coils
The present design of the modular primary field coils for W7-X leaves only modest space between the inner cyrostat wall and the last closed magnetic surface for installation of the divertor system. Therefore, 2 alternative coil designs aimed at increasing the volume inside the coil system were devised using an automatic optimization procedure. First a detailed outline of the requirements on the coil system and of the optimization procedure is given. Then the new coil configurations are presented and their properties compared against the original coil design.
