A 60-kA high-temperature-superconductor (HTS) current lead has been fabricated and tested for aiming at the application to a fusion magnet system, providing a low heat leak current lead. The design of HTS current leads is optimized not only to reduce the heat leak but also to perform safe operation even in fault conditions. The HTS current lead consists of a forced flow cooled copper part and a conduction cooled HTS part. The HTS part is composed of 288 Ag-10at.%Au sheathed Bi-2223 tapes and they are cylindrically arrayed on a stainless steel tube. The diameter and the length of the HTS part are 146 mm and 300 mm, respectively. Operation of a 60 kA current, which is the world record, was successfully achieved at coolant of 20 K, 3.2 g/s for the copper part, and a low heat leak of 5.5 W at 4.2 K was demonstrated. This result shows that the electric power of a refrigerator to cool the current lead can be reduced by 1/3 of that in a conventional current lead. In conclusion, technology of a large HTS current lead for fusion application is established.

Feasibility of D$$^{3}$$He/ST fusion power reactor

Shimotono, Hidetoshi*; Nishio, Satoshi; Kondo, Shunsuke*

Fusion Engineering and Design, 69(1-4), p.675 - 681, 2003/09

 Times Cited Count:3 Percentile:26.38(Nuclear Science & Technology)

The prospect of D$$^{3}$$He/ST fusion power reactor have been explored and the design window of the reactor has been specified. The high temperature super-conductor (Bi2212/Ag/Ag) is chosen for TF coils; the operation temperature is 20 K; the conductor current density is about 110 MA/m$$^{2}$$ at 18-23 T. System analyses have indicated that the design window (which satisfies the constraints HH$$_{y2}$$$$leq$$2, ${it n}$$$_{e}$$/${it n}$$$_{GW}$$$$<$$1.1, and $$sigma$$TF$$leq$$800MPa) is amall and require ${it A}$$$>$$1.55, $$beta$$$$_{t}$$$$leq$$40%, and the first wall thermal losd ${it P}$$$_{w}$$$$<$$1.25 MW/m$$^{2}$$ to ensure the functional and structural reliabilities of the center column (i.e. TF coil system). The plasma current is 75-85 MA.

Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute has started development work on a large current conductor using high Tc superconductor (HTS) aiming at a fusion power reactor after the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). HTS has a capability to produce a magnetic field of higher than 16 T, which is required in such a fusion power reactor. A trial fabrication of a 10-kA 12-T conductor was started using round Ag-alloy sheathed Bi-2212 strands, which has best performance at 4.2K, 16T at present. The conductor has about 34-mm diameter, and is composed of 729 HTS strands. Operating temperature is designed at not only 4 K but also 20K. The conductor sample is indirectly cooled and is solder-coated on the surface to use specific heat of the lead as much as possible, which at 20 K is almost comparable with specific heat of SHe at 4.5K, 0.6MPa. From the tests of the conductor, the fabrication of large HTS conductor and 10kA operation at 12 T and about 12.5 K were successfully performed and the possibility of HTS to use fusion application was demonstrated.
