Princeton Fusion Power Plant superconducting magnet system and costs

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Princeton University Reference Design of a proposed fusion power plant has been previously described. This paper describes details of the superconducting magnet system consisting of toroidal field, divertor, ohmic heating, equilibrium field and control field magnets, all of which are wound of Nb$sub 3$Sn conductor. The toroidal field coils are of the moment-free, ''D'' type, previously described. The toroidal field magnet is comprised of 48 discrete ''D'' coils, 12m x 19m bore. The magnet has a stored energy of 250 x 10$sup 9$ joules. The magnet which is operated at a maximum field of 16T is described in detail. ... continued below

Description

The Princeton University Reference Design of a proposed fusion power plant has been previously described. This paper describes details of the superconducting magnet system consisting of toroidal field, divertor, ohmic heating, equilibrium field and control field magnets, all of which are wound of Nb$sub 3$Sn conductor. The toroidal field coils are of the moment-free, ''D'' type, previously described. The toroidal field magnet is comprised of 48 discrete ''D'' coils, 12m x 19m bore. The magnet has a stored energy of 250 x 10$sup 9$ joules. The magnet which is operated at a maximum field of 16T is described in detail. Fault conditions are calculated and design conditions based on maximum fault forces are outlined. In addition, the Dewar System, the refrigeration plant (requiring 280 kW of refrigeration), the safety system, and the coil protection system for the magnets are described. Finally, an overview of the helium-steam generating plant and detailed cost data for the plant, the nuclear island and the magnet are presented. (auth)
