Conductor fabrication for ITER model coils - status of the EU cabling and jacketing activities
The conductors for the ITER magnets are being defined according to the operating requirements of the machine. To demonstrate the technological feasibility of the main features of the magnets, two model coils, with bores in the range of 2-3m, will be manufactured. This is the first significant industrial production of full size conductor. One cabling and one jacketing line have been assembled in Europe. The former can cable up to 1100m unit lengths; the latter, which can also handle 1000m conductor lengths, has been assembled in a shorter version. A description of the lines is reported, together with the results of the trials performed up to now.
