Cooling water circulating under pressure through the ITER installation is responsible for removing the heat load from the ITER vacuum vessel, its plasma-facing components, and plant systems such as heating and power systems. As an experimental device, ITER will not be exploiting the heat to generate electricity. Instead, the cooling water will be transferred through a cascade of cooling loops.   Among others, one of the main critical issues of the ITER reactor is the transfer of the heat generated in the Plasma, during the D-T reaction, through the Tokamak Cooling Water System (TCWS), to.   Published by Elsevier Ltd DESIGN OF A COOLING SYSTEM FOR THE COLD TEST OF THE ITER TF COILS BEFORE INSTALLATION Zahn G.R. t, Duchateau J.L 2, Fietz W.H. 1, Gravil B. 2, Heller R. l, Millet F. 3, Nicollet S. 2, Chesny p.4 1Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (FZK), EURATOM Association, Institut fuer Technische Physik, Postfach , D Karlsruhe Cited by: 1. ITER-India designed and built the country’s contributions to ITER, including the cryostat, a massive vacuum containment vessel that is the single largest component of the ITER machine.

  "Indian scientists have also made valuable contributions to the development and fabrication of the cryostat, the cooling system, the cryo distribution system and several kilometres of cryo lines. During inductive plasma operation of ITER, fusion power will reach MW with an energy multiplication factor of The heat will be transferred by the Tokamak Cooling Water System (TCWS) to the. ITER (originally the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject, which will be the world's largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. It is an experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor that is being built next to the Cadarache facility in Saint-Paul-lès-Durance, in Provence, southern France.   The heating neutral beam injectors (HNBs) of ITER are designed to deliver MW of 1 MeV D 0 or MeV H 0 to the ITER plasma for up to s. They will be the most powerful neutral beam (NB) injectors ever, delivering higher energy NBs to the plasma in a tokamak for longer than any previous systems have done.

The tokamak cooling water system (TCWS) is the primary cooling system of the ITER tokamak machine, providing cooling water to the vacuum vessel and in-vacuum vessel components. In addition, it provides water and gas baking to its clients as well as drying them prior to maintenance activities.   Six Test Blanket Systems (TBS) will be installed and operated in ITER in the framework of the ITER Test Blanket Module (TBM) Program. After a short description of each TBS and of the main operating parameters, this paper gives the main features of the various TBSs sub-systems, in particular, the cooling systems (helium, water and/or lithium-lead), the tritium system for extracting the tritium.   The ITER cooling water system (CWS) design completed in was based on the following series of circuits: (a) the Tokamak cooling water system (TCWS) with the closed primary heat transfer systems (PHTSs) for the vacuum vessel (VV), first wall and blanket (FW/BLK), divertor and limiter (DIV/LIM) and neutral beam injectors (NBI); (b) the component cooling water system (CCWS) . The TCWS is designed to remove 1 GW of heat from ITER client systems, such as the first-wall/ blanket, vacuum vessel, divertor, and neutral beam injector. In addition, the system provides water chemistry control and draining/drying functions. The system interfaces with the secondary cooling water system, which is being provided by ITER India.
