Environmental radiation monitoring around the Tokai Reprocessing Plant has been performed by the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories, based on "Safety Regulations for the Reprocessing Plant of Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Chapter IV - Environmental Monitoring". This annual report presents the results of the environmental monitoring and the dose estimation to the hypothetical inhabitant due to the radioactivity discharged from the plant to the atmosphere and the sea during April 2020 to March 2021. In this report, some data include the influence of the accidental release from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. (the trade name was changed to Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. on April 1, 2016) in March 2011. Appendices present comprehensive information, such as monitoring programs, monitoring methods, monitoring results and their trends, meteorological data and discharged radioactive wastes. In addition, the data which were influenced by the accidental release and exceeded the normal range of fluctuation in the monitoring, were evaluated.

Ripple loss of alpha particles in a low-aspect ratio tokamak reactor

Tani, Keiji*; Nishio, Satoshi; Tobita, Kenji; Tsutsui, Hiroaki*; Mimata, Hideyuki*; Iio, Shunji*; Aoki, Takayuki*

Denki Gakkai Rombunshi, A, 129(9), p.569 - 574, 2009/09

Studies on the loss of fusion produced alpha particles enhanced by toroidal field (TF) ripple in a low-aspect-ratio tokamak reactor (VECTOR) have been made by using an orbit-following Monte-Carlo code. In actual TF coil systems, the ripple loss of alpha particles is strongly reduced as the aspect ratio becomes low (the power loss is proportional to A$$^{8.8}$$ for A more than 2.5) and the reduction of the number of TF coils results in a large amount of ripple losses even in a low-aspect-ratio tokamak.

Numerical study of the ripple resonance diffusion of alpha particles in tokamaks

Mimata, Hideyuki*; Tani, Keiji*; Tsutsui, Hiroaki*; Tobita, Kenji; Iio, Shunji*; Shimada, Ryuichi*

Plasma and Fusion Research (Internet), 4, p.008_1 - 008_8, 2009/04

The energy dependence of the diffusion coefficients of alpha particles in rippled magnetic fields of tokamaks are numerically investigated with an orbit following Monte Carlo code. The diffusion coefficients are enhanced around the ripple resonance energy while they are reduced and has a minimum near the resonance energy, and hence they have an M-shaped dependence on the energy. The ripple resonance is caused by a radial change of the toroidal precession of banana particles, and creates islands in the phase space related with the toroidal and poloidal angles. Since the particles outside the separatrix mainly contribute to the diffusion, the M-shaped energy dependence is explained by both island structure and initial distribution of particles in the phase space. Such a ripple resonant diffusion is dominant for fusion-produced alpha particles in the slowing down process.

Confinement of alpha particles in a low-aspect-ratio tokamak reactor

Tani, Keiji; Tobita, Kenji; Iio, Shunji*; Tsutsui, Hiroaki*; Nishio, Satoshi; Aoki, Takayuki*

Denki Gakkai Rombunshi, A, 125(11), p.938 - 942, 2005/11

Studies on the loss of fusion produced alpha particles enhanced by toroidal field (TF) ripple in a low-aspect-ratio tokamak reactor (VECTOR) have been made by using an orbit-following Monte-Carlo code. The ripple loss is strongly reduced as the aspect ratio becomes low. Consequently, alpha particles are well confined in VECTOR. Thanks to the good confinement of alphas in a low-aspect-ratio system, the number of TF coils can be reduced to about 6, one half of the original VECTOR, by installing cooling systems near the outer edge of plasma and making allowances for about 30% increase in the bore diameter of TF coils.

An event that a pre-filter burned on fire took place in the glove box dismantlement facility of Plutonium Production Facility, on April 21, 2003. The direct cause of this event was considered to be sparks generated by an abrasive wheel cutter, some of which reached the pre-filter and eventually burned the pre-filter. Further investigation revealed that there exist other deficiencies those of which formed indirect causes of the event, such as the wheel cutter was used without protective cover and adequate shield against sparks was not installed during the operation. To prevent similar event in the future, following corrective actions were introduced. Wheel cutter will not be used without protective cover; Incombustible pre-filter will be used; Shield will be place at the front of the pre-filter. We have conducted series of experimental tests in order to evaluate and confirm the validity of these corrective actions as well as determine the cause of the fire. This report present the results of these tests.

Confinement of alpha particles in a low aspect ratio tokamak reactor

Purazuma, Kaku Yugo Gakkai-Shi, 80(11), p.931 - 934, 2004/11

Studies were made on ripple losses of fusion produced alpha particles in a low-aspect-ratio tokamak reactor (VECTOR) by using an orbit-following Monte-Carlo code. Alpha particles are well confined in VECTOR. In a low-aspect-ratio tokamak, the dependence of ripple losses on the number of toroidal-field (TF) coils N is very weak. Assuming a toroidal peaking factor of 2 for the heat load due to loss particles, about 1.5% and 1.0% of TF ripple at the outer edge of plasma might be allowable for the first wall with and without cooling system, respectively. In both cases, the number of TF-coils can be reduced to about 4.

Studies were made on ripple losses of fusion produced alpha particles in a tokamak reactor with a non-circular plasma cross-section by using an orbit-following Monte-Carlo code. A preliminary estimation of ripple loss of alpha particles in VECTOR, a compact tokamak type fusion reactor, with a negative magnetic shear was also made

Energetic particle experiments in JT-60U are summarized, mainly covering ripple loss and Alfven eigenmodes (AE modes). Significant loss was observed for 85 keV NBI ions and fusion-produced tritons increased when toroidal field ripple at the plasma surface, especially in reversed shear plasma. Measurement of hot spots on the first wall due to ripple loss confirmed agreement with code predictions, validating the modeling incorporated in an orbit-following Monte Carlo code. A variety of AE modes were destabilized in ICRF minority heating and negative-ion-based NBI (N-NBI) heating. Most of the observed modes are gap modes identified to be TAE, EAE and NAE. Interesting finding is pulsating modes accompanying frequency sweep, which were destabilized by N-NBI and sometimes induced a beam ion loss of up to 25%. Also presented are energetic particle issues in auxiliary heating with ICRF and N-NBI.
