RF Systems for a Proposed Next Step Option (FIRE)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

FIRE (Fusion Ignition Research Experiment) is a high-field, burning-plasma tokamak that is being studied as a possible option for future fusion research. Preliminary parameters for this machine are R<sub>0</sub> approximately equal to 2 m, a approximately equal to 0.5 m, B<sub>0</sub> approximately equal to 10 T, and I<sub>p</sub> approximately equal to 6 MA. Magnetic field coils are to be made of copper and precooled with LN<sub>2</sub> before each shot. The flat-top pulse length desired is greater than or equal to 10s. Ion cyclotron and lower hybrid rf systems will be used for heating and current drive. Present specifications call for ... continued below

Ion cyclotron and lower hybrid rf systems will be used for heating and current drive. Present specifications call for 30 MW of ion cyclotron heating power, with 25 MW of lower hybrid power as an upgrade option.
