Mechanical design of the ITER ion cyclotron heating launcher based on in-vessel tuning system

Funded under: FP7-EURATOM

Abstract

Since the release of the ITER ICRH system reference design report [ITER Final Design Report: DDD 5.1 -Ion Cyclotron and Current Drive System, July 2001], further design studies have been conducted. If the base of the reference design [Final Report on EFDA contract 04/1129, ITER ICRF antenna and Matching system design (Internalmatching), April 2005] is kept unchanged, several significant modifications have been proposed for a better efficiency and reliability. The increase of the poloidal order of the array and strong modifications of the matching system concept are the main changes. Technical aspects insufficiently covered in previous studies are also now worked out in detail, like the integration on a mid-plane port satisfying the constraints of the ITER environment.
