Insulation and impregnation test for ITER toroidal field coils

Hemmi, Tsutomu; Matsui, Kunihiro; Koizumi, Norikiyo; Nakajima, Hideo; Iijima, Ami*; Sakai, Masahiro*

The manufacturing process for the ITER Toroidal Field (TF) coil has to be demonstrated for the qualification. Since the impregnation of its insulation system is one of the qualifications, the authors performed impregnation test using cyanate-ester and epoxy blended resin, which is a candidate among resins because of its excellent resistance to radiation. To establish the insulation and impregnation procedure of the TF coil manufacturing, three types of trials were performed. (1) Impregnation tests using an acrylic model to fix the impregnation conditions; (2) Impregnation test using a metallic model to confirm that no void remains in the insulation layer after the curing in the D-shaped configuration; and (3) Insulation and impregnation trials using 1/3 scale double pancake (DP) to establish the insulation and impregnation procedure for the TF coil manufacturing, The procedure of the insulation and impregnation for the ITER TF coil was established from the results of these trials.
