Abstract

The electrical distribution boards and control cubicles, installed inside the ITER Tokamak building, can be subject to a constant or slowly variable magnetic field up to 70mT, 10mT/s included by ITER coils. This is a very unusual environmental condition and there are almost no data available on static magnetic field compatibility for the standard industrial electrical and electronic components that might be used inside standard low voltage distribution boards and standard control boards.
A series of tests has therefore been envisaged, in collaboration with EFDA Close Support Unit and the Consorzio RFX, to assess the operational limits of these components. CEA has specially taken in charge the test of electronic, control and signal conditioning units.
