ITER divertor sweep AC loss estimation

Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

In the ITER tokamak, one of the most crucial components will be the divertor plates. To better distribute thermal load, the magnetic field could be varied in order to move the impact point over the whole area of the plates. Unfortunately, such a variation in time causes increased AC-losses in the superconducting PF coils that could exceed the specifications. The goal of this work was to provide an estimation of the AC-losses for sweep oscillations with different amplitudes and frequencies.
