The superconducting Satellite Tokamak machine "JT-60SA" under construction in Naka Fusion Institute is an international collaborative project between Japan (JA) and Europe (EU). The contributions for this project are based on the supply of components, and thus European manufacturer shall conduct the installation, commissioning and tests on Naka site. This means that Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) had a quite difficult issue to manage the works by European workers and their safety although there is no direct contract. This report describes the approaches for the work and safety managements, which were agreed with EU after the tough negotiation, and then the completed on-site works for Quench Protection Circuits (QPC) as the first experience for EU in JT-60SA project. With the help of these approaches by JAEA, the EU works for QPC were successfully completed with no accident, and a great achievement was made for both EU and JA.

The withstand voltage of turn insulation is essential issues for the superconducting magnet. The actual turn voltage is larger than the turn voltage under the ideal condition because of the voltage fluctuations of the power supply and the resonance phenomenon in the magnet. In this paper, the voltage measurement of the JT-60U power supply and the resonance characteristics of the EF4 are described. The actual maximum turn voltage is almost same as the voltage under the ideal condition.

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.

Initial design study of a DC power supply system for JT-60SA

In JT-60SA, Toroidal Field coil (TF coil) and Poloidal Field coils (PF coils) are superconducting coils and a long-pulse plasma operation with more than 100s flattop is assumed. Corresponding to the superconducting TF and PF coils, new DC power supply system in JT-60SA is necessary. The DC power supply system is composed of the reused JT-60 power supply components and newly manufactured ones to reduce total cost. A quench protection circuit is newly introduced to fast discharge coil magnetic stored energy. This paper describes the initial design study of JT-60SA DC power supply system for TF and PF coils in Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).

Design study of an AC power system for additional heating facilities in JT-60SA

Shimada, Katsuhiro; Terakado, Tsunehisa; Kurihara, Kenichi

JAEA-Technology 2008-022, 24 Pages, 2008/03


In JT-60SA, the heating power with 41 MW - 100 s is assumed at the additional heating facilities including NBI and RF facilities. The present AC power system, which is composed of the motor generator (H-MG, Capacity: 400 MVA), can not supply the necessary AC power to the additional heating facilities because the necessary AC power is about 130 MW - 100 s considering the efficiency and power factor of the additional heating facilities. Therefore, new AC power system is necessary for the additional heating facilities in JT-60SA. In this report, we propose new AC power system directly powered from the commercial line for the additional heating facilities in JT-60SA. Moreover, this report describes the design study of the reactive power compensator including high harmonic current filters and shunt capacitors to be satisfied with the receiving condition for NAKA Fusion Institute using PSCAD/EMTDC simulation.

A New intelligent coil current control system combined with a synchronous generator and a diode rectifier

Shimada, Katsuhiro; Omori, Yoshikazu; Furukawa, Hiroshi*; Terakado, Tsunehisa; Matsukawa, Makoto; Kurihara, Kenichi

Proceedings of International Conference on Electrical Engineering 2004 (ICEE 2004), p.777 - 781, 2004/00

We developed a new coil current control system for a power supply that consists of a synchronous generator and diode rectifiers. Test results are reported for the toroidal field coil power supply of JT-60, a world-class tokamak-type fusion device. This coil current control system has been designed to improve the control flexibility of the plasma discharge, and to introduce new functions. A state feedback control method is adopted to control coil current. Limit functions for the generator field current, the generator output voltage, and the toroidal field coil voltage have been added to the original coil current control system. Moreover, the abnormal state detection function of a coil is implemented for safety. The developed new intelligent control system has been tested and its performance was confirmed.

This paper reviews developments of the JT-60U tokamak and coil power supplies and their operational experiences obtained to date. The JT-60U is a large tokamak upgraded from the original JT-60 to obtain high plasma current, large plasma volume and highly elongated divertor configurations. In the modification, all components inside the bore of toroidal magnetic field coils, a vacuum vessel, poloidal magnetic field coils (PF-coils), divertor etc., were renewed. Furthermore, boron carbide converted CFC tiles were used as divertor tiles to reduce erosion of carbon-base tiles. Later, a semi-closed divertor with pumps was installed in the replacement of the open divertor. Various technologies and ideas introduced to develop these components their operational experiences provide important data for designing future tokamaks. Also, major troubles that had influence on the JT-60U operations are described. As a maintenance issue for tokamaks using deuterium fueling gas, a method for reducing radiation exposure of in-vessel workers are introduced.
