The maximum magnetic field, current and voltage of CS for JT-60SA are 8.9 T, 20 kA and 10 kV, respectively. Nb$$_{3}$$Sn conductor with high field and high current density was developed. The outer diameter and height of CS are 2 and 1.6 m, respectively. Several components were newly developed and tested. To increase the supplying flux, winding diameter should be maximized as possible. The butt type joint was developed that can minimize the joint space. DGEBA epoxy used for main binder of insulation showed sufficient tensile strength even though the $$gamma$$ ray irradiation of 100 kGy. Insulation characteristics of 4$$times$$4 stack sample applying double of operational stress with operational cycle showed the larger withstand voltage than 21 kV. According to these results, the fabrication of CS can be started.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) is the first to start the mass production of the TF conductors in March 2010 among the 6 parties who are procuring TF conductors in the ITER project. The height and width of the TF coils are 14 m and 9 m, respectively. The conductor is cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) with a central spiral. A circular multistage superconducting cable is inserted into a circular stainless steel jacket with a thickness of 2 mm. A total of 900 Nb$$_{3}$$Sn strands and 522 copper strands are cabled around the central spiral and the cable is inserted into a round-in-round stainless steel jacket. It was observed that the cabling pitch of the destructive sample is longer than the original pitch at cabling. The JAEA carried out the tensile tests of the cable and the measurement of the cable rotation during the insertion to investigate the cause of the elongation. The cause of elongation was clarified and the results will be described in this paper.

Critical current of cable-in-conduit conductors (CICCs) for ITER TF coils was measured. It was found from these test results that the measured critical current was lower than that evaluated from the critical current performance of a single strand. One of the explanations for this phenomenon is a non-uniform current distribution due to (1) unbalanced resistance among strands and between the strand and the upper/bottom joint and (2) local degradation of strand in the conductor. It is reported that the former was improved by using solder-filled joint but the latter issue seems to still remain. Therefore, the author developed a new analysis model for the calculation of strain distribution in the conductor taking account of strand bending and buckling and then, combined this with the electrical circuit model developed by authors before. Simulation results show that when local degradation is significant, the conductor performance can be degraded. In this presentation, these results are reported.

The ITER Cable-In-Conduit Conductor (CICC) used in the superconducting magnet system consists of a cable made of 300 to 1440 strands housed in a stainless steel tube (a.k.a. jacket or conduit). There are circular, square, as well as circle-in-square jackets, made of either a very low carbon AISI 316LN grade stainless steel or a high Mn austenitic stainless steel developed for ITER called JK2LB. Selected mechanical properties of the base material and weld joint were tested at room temperature and/or cryogenic temperatures ($$<$$ 7 K). The Domestic Agencies (DAs) reference laboratories and the ITER-IO appointed reference laboratories, CERN and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) performed mechanical tests. This paper will compare the test results (e.g. elongation to failure) from different laboratories.
