This paper reports the progress in the reference design of the Acceleration Grid Power Supply (AGPS) of the ITER Neutral Beam Injector (NBI). The design of the AGPS is very challenging, as it shall be rated to provide about 55 MW at 1 MV dc in quasi steady-state conditions; moreover, the procurement of the system is shared between the European Domestic Agency (F4E) and the Japanese Domestic Agency (JADA), resulting in additional design complication due to the need of a common definition of the interface parameters. A critical revision of the main design choices is presented also in light of the definition of some key interface parameters between the two AGPS subsystems. Moreover, the verification of the fulfillment of the requirements in any operational conditions taking into account the tolerance of the different parameters is also reported and discussed.

To realize high performance plasmas in tokamak devices, error field correction (EFC) is one of the very important issues. Actually, error field correction coil is being planned in ITER using superconducting coils, while normal copper coils will be employed in JT-60SA. Similar coils are installed and under operation in many devices over the world. In the case of JT-60SA, EFC coils will be realized by 12 (or 18) sector coils installed inside the vacuum vessel. This paper describes a conceptual design study for the circuit configuration and control strategy of the power supply system of these EFC coils. In conclusion, to minimize the number of current feeders and semiconductor power devices, multi-phase inverter is the best solution not only from the cost merit but also from a view point of canceling the induced voltage of axisymmetric magnetic component.

In JT-60SA, to achieve the steady-state high beta plasma, suppression of Resistive Wall Modes (RWM) is necessary. Therefore, a passive stabilizing plate and a RWM active control system based on in-vessel coils are foreseen for JT-60SA. This paper deals with the electromagnetic analyses on the sector coils of JT-60SA, with the main aim to determine the voltage/current characteristic of the coils and, at the same time, to have a first estimation of amplitude and shape of the produced magnetic field; different sector coil design solutions were considered and evaluated. The studies on the coil over-currents during plasma disruption or vertical displacement events are also presented. The results give useful indications in support to the development of the sector coils and power supply design and the identification of their electrical and functional requirements.

This paper deals with the conceptual design of the Quench Protection Circuits (QPC) of JT-60SA which have to provide a fast removal of the energy stored in the superconducting coils in case of quench. The core of the QPC units is constituted by a dc current breaker, which diverts the coil current into a resistor for a fast machine de-energization. In this paper, a hybrid solution, composed of a mechanical bypass switch paralleled to a static switch based on Integrated Gate Commutated Thyristor (IGCT) technology, has been chosen and worked out; a pyrobreaker is added in series to the hybrid switch as a backup protection. The resulting design allows benefiting from the fast breaking and very low maintenance requirement of the static switches, besides maintaining the advantage of the much lower power losses of the mechanical bypass in normal operation.

One of the important missions of JT-60SA is to demonstrate and develop steady-state high beta operation in order to supplement ITER toward DEMO. Specifications of plasma control system including the stabilizing plate, the RWM control coils, the error field correction coils and fast position control coils were determined based on simulations and expected plasma regime. Full non-inductive steady-state plasma with $$beta_{N} = 4.3$$ at $$I_{p}=2.3 $$ MA will be achieved with these control systems. Simulation of plasma disruption was also performed to evaluate design values of Electro Magnetic forces of components.
