Cryogenic structures of superconducting coils for fusion experimental reactor "ITER"

Nakajima, Hideo; Shimamoto, Susumu*; Iguchi, Masahide; Hamada, Kazuya; Okuno, Kiyoshi; Takahashi, Yoshikazu

JAEA is procuring both structural materials and structural design of Toroidal Field (TF) coil and Central Solenoid (CS) for ITER. Although 316LN is used in the most parts of the superconducting magnets system, the cryogenic stainless steels, JJ1 and JK2LB, which were newly developed by JAEA and Japanese steel companies, are used in the highest stress area of TF coil case and whole CS conductor jackets, respectively. These two materials became commercially available based on demonstration of productivity and weldability of materials, and evaluations of 4 K mechanical properties of trial products including welded parts. In order to simplify quality control in mass production, JAEA has used materials specified in the material section of "Codes for Fusion Facilities - Rules on Superconducting Magnet Structure (2008)" issued by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). The design of structural materials, production technology and quality control are described in this paper.
