Superconducting equilibrium coil design studies for the Argonne Experimental Power Reactor

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

As an integral effort in the Argonne Experimental Power Reactor design studies, a scoping-study was made on the equilibrium coil system. Various design options were investigated. The reference design is a superconducting equilibrium field coil system located outside the toroidal field coils for reasons of ease of coil assembly, disassembly, coil support, remote maintenance and the least interference with the assembly and disassembly of the first wall and the blanket and shield. It was also found that there is a large I$sup 2$R loss if the coils were made of water-cooled copper. The superconducting equilibrium coil design was developed in ... continued below

Description

As an integral effort in the Argonne Experimental Power Reactor design studies, a scoping-study was made on the equilibrium coil system. Various design options were investigated. The reference design is a superconducting equilibrium field coil system located outside the toroidal field coils for reasons of ease of coil assembly, disassembly, coil support, remote maintenance and the least interference with the assembly and disassembly of the first wall and the blanket and shield. It was also found that there is a large I$sup 2$R loss if the coils were made of water-cooled copper. The superconducting equilibrium coil design was developed in considerable detail with the 60,000 A ac superconducting low loss cable design, ac pulsing loss evaluation and the full stabilization examination. The proposed superconductor is NbTi with copper and cupro-nickel as two-component matrix. Finally, the equilibrium field requirements are also discussed. (auth)
