Several concepts of DEMO have been proposed so far with plasma physics assumptions. At the same time, plasma performances foreseen in DEMO have been developed experimentally in tokamaks. However there are large gaps between the physics design parameters of the DEMO concepts and the simultaneous achieved parameters in tokamak experiments. Since one of the foreseeable integrated plasma performances is the ITER steady-state scenario, the projection of the scenario parameter to DEMO concept has been analyzed by using the systems code. The fusion power of 1GW can be obtained with the plasma major radius of 9 m. The same power can be obtained with 8 m if the distance between TF coil and plasma surface is reduced from 2 m to 1.5 m. Furthermore, it was found that the heat load on the divertor region is increased with increasing the normalized density and is decreased with increasing the normalized beta.
