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.

The National Centralized Tokamak (NCT) facility program is a domestic research program for advanced tokamak research to succeed JT-60U incorporating Japanese university accomplishments. The mission of NCT is to establish high beta steady-state operation for DEMO and to contribute to ITER. The machine flexibility and mobility is pursued in aspect ratio and shape controllability, feedback control of resistive wall modes, wide current and pressure profile control capability for the demonstration of the high-b steady state.

Design studies are shown on the National Centralized Tokamak facility. The machine design is carried out to investigate the capability for the flexibility in aspect ratio and shape controllability for the demonstration of the high-beta steady state operation with nation-wide collaboration, in parallel with ITER towards DEMO. Two designs are proposed and assessed with respect to the physics requirements such as confinement, stability, current drive, divertor, and energetic particle confinement. The operation range in the aspect ratio and the plasma shape is widely enhanced in consistent with the sufficient divertor pumping. Evaluations of the plasma performance towards the determination of machine design are presented.

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.

Confinement of alpha particles in a low aspect ratio tokamak reactor

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

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.
