Raising the JET Toroidal Field to 4 Tesla
The TF coils were originally designed for operation at 3.45 T. Margins in the original design suggested that a higher field might be possible. A simple scaling up of the stresses in the copper showed reasonable stresses. Operation at 4 T appeared to offer substantial advances in plasma performance so in mid 1995 a detailed feasibility study was started. Upgrade of the power supplies was also studied and is reported elsewhere.
