The most distinctive feature of the superconducting magnet system for JT-60SA is the optimized coil structure in terms of the space utilization as well as the highly accurate coil manufacturing, thus meeting the requirements for the steady-state tokamak research: A conceptually new outer inter-coil structure separated from the casing is introduced to the toroidal field coils to realize their slender shape, allowing large-bore diagnostic ports for detailed plasma measurements. A method to minimize the manufacturing error of the equilibrium-field coils has been established, aiming at the precise plasma shape/position control. A compact butt-joint has been successfully developed for the Central Solenoid, which allows an optimized utilization of the limited space for the Central Solenoid to extend the duration of the plasma pulse.

The upgrade of the JT-60U magnet system to the superconducting coils (JT-60SA) is progressing as a satellite facility for ITER by Japan and EU in the BA agreement. All components of magnet system are now under manufacturing in mass production. The first superconducting EF conductor was manufactured in 2010 in Japan. First superconducting coil EF4 was manufactured in 2012. Other EF5 and EF6 coils shall be manufactured by 2013 to install temporally on the cryostat base before the assembly of the plasma vacuum vessel. CS model coil is fabricated to qualify all manufacturing process of Nb$$_{3}$$Sn conductor. The first TF conductor was manufactured in 2012. The cryogenic requirements for JT-60SA are about 9 kW at 4.5K. Each coil is connected through an in-cryostat feeder to the current leads located outside the cryostat in the CTB. A total of 26 HTS current leads are installed in the CTB. The manufacturing of the magnet system is in progress to provide components to assembly the Tokamak machine.

The Broader Approach agreement between Europe and Japan includes the construction of a fully superconducting tokamak, the JT-60 Super Advanced (JT-60SA), as a satellite experiment to ITER. Toroidal field (TF) magnet which consists of 18 D-shaped coils will be provided to Japan by EU. TF coil main constituents are conductor, winding pack, joints, casing and current leads. The design criteria about conductor and structure were discussed between JA and EU adopted to fulfill the machine requirements. The results of the analyses performed by EU and JA to define and assess the TF magnet system conceptual design, are reported and commented.

The upgrade of JT-60U magnet system to superconducting coils (JT-60SA) has been decided by both parties of Japan and EU in the framework of the Broader Approach agreement. The magnet system for JT-60SA consists of 18 toroidal field (TF) coils, a central solenoid (CS) with four modules, seven equilibrium field (EF) coils. TF case encloses the winding pack and is the main structural component. CS consists of four winding pack modules with its pre-load structure. Seven EF coils are attached to the TF coil cases through supports which include flexible plates. Since CS modules are operated at high magnetic field, Nb$$_{3}$$Sn superconductor is used. While NbTi superconductor is used in TF coils and EF coils. The magnet system has large heat load from nuclear heating by DD fusion and large AC loss from control actions. This paper descries the technical requirements, the operational interface and the conceptual design of the superconducting magnet system for JT-60SA.

The upgrade of JT-60U to JT-60 Super Advanced (JT-60SA), a fully superconducting tokamak, will be performed in the framework of the Broader Approach (BA) agreement between Europe (EU) and Japan. In particular, the Toroidal Field (TF) system, which includes 18 coils, is foreseen to be procured by France, Italy and Germany. This work covers activities from design and manufacturing to shipping to Japan. The present paper is mainly devoted to the analyses that lead to the conductor design and to the technical specifications of the joints for the JT-60SA TF coils. The conductor geometry is described, which is derived from Cable-In-Conduit concept and adapted to the actual JT-60SA tokamak operating conditions, principally the ITER-like scenario. The reported simulations and calculations are particularly dealing with the stability analysis and the power deposition during normal and off-normal conditions (AC losses, nuclear heating). The final conductor solution was selected through a trade-off between scientific approach and industrial technical orientation. Besides, the TF system connections layout is shown, derived from the industrially assessed twin-box concept, together with the associated thermo-hydraulic calculations ensuring a proper temperature margin.
