Tore supra ICRH antenna prototype for next step devices
ITER-like IC antennas, fulfilling or possibly exceeding ITER requirements and designed for long pulse operation (1000 s) are currently being developed at Cadarache. As part of these developments, a project of an IC antenna prototype obtained by modifying a tore supra (TS) resonant double loop (RDL) antenna is proposed, to assess in real working conditions the performance of this scheme. After a brief comparison between the new RF circuit version and the conventional RDL circuit, which has been tested in TS for 10 years, the paper focuses on the design and manufacturing aspects of the prototype.
