The 1.5D time-dependent transport analysis has been carried out to investigate steady state operation scenarios with a central current hole by off-axis current drive schemes consistent with a high bootstrap current fraction for a large superconducting tokamak JT-60SC. A steady state operation scenario with HH$$_{y2}$$=1.4 and $$beta$$$$_{N}$$=3.7 has been obtained at I$$_{p}$$=1.5 MA, B$$_{t}$$=2 T and q$$_{95}$$=5 where non-inductive currents are developed during the discharge to form a current hole with beam driven currents by tangential off-axis beams in combination with bootstrap currents by additional on-axis perpendicular beams. The bootstrap fraction increases up to nearly 75% of the plasma current and the current hole region is enlarged up to about 30% of the minor radius at 35 s from the discharge initiation. The current hole is confirmed to be sustained afterward for a long duration of 60 s. The stability analysis shows that the beta limit with the conducting wall can be about $$beta$$$$_{N}$$=4.5, which is substantially above the no wall ideal MHD limit.

High performance steady-state operation for JT-60SC are evaluated by the TOPICS analysis. $$beta$$$$_N$$$$sim$$5 and bootstrap current fraction $$sim$$86% is kept steady at I$$_p$$=1.5 MA, B$$_t$$=2 T by neutral beam power of 11 MW. The ERATO-J analysis shows that the external-kink mode with multiple toroidal mode numbers of n=1 and n=2 is stable at $$beta$$$$_N$$ $$leq$$5.5 at the average ratio of conducting wall radius to plasma minor radius of about 1.2 with the wall stabilisation effect. Resistive wall modes, induced by a close location of the wall to plasma, is expected to be suppressed by the active feedback stabilisation with a set of non-axisymmetric field coils behind the stabilising plates. Further optimisation for the high-$$beta$$$$_N$$ accessibility by the plasma shaping is performed with the TOSCA analysis. The plasma shaping factor defined as S=(I$$_p$$/aB$$_t$$)q$$_9$$$$_5$$ and strongly correlated to the plasma elongation and triangularity, is scanned from $$sim$$4 to $$sim$$6, which extends the availability of current and pressure profile control for the high performance plasma operation.

Neutron shielding material of the port section of JT-60 superconducting modification (JT-60SC) serves as a design which used resin (KRAFTON-HB4) excellent in the temperature characteristic from polyethylene. In order to make port weight mitigate and reduce the nuclear heating of the superconducting coil, we were developed the resin which added natural BORON to resin. The 2.45MeV neutron generated in the D-D reaction was irradiated, the penetration of the neutron was measured in some kinds of samples which changed the amount of BORON, and the shielding performance of the resin containing BORON was compared with them. The penetration rates of fast neutron flux do not depend on the doped density of boron in both measurements. Whereas the penetration rates of thermal neutron flux in the resin with 2 wt% B are about 25% lower than those with 1 wt% at the back surface of the test specimens.

The dominant issue for the the modification program of JT-60 (JT-60SC) is to demonstrate the steady state reactor relevant plasma operation. Physics design on plasma parameters, operation scenarios, and the plasma control method are investigated for the achievement of high-$$beta$$. Engineering design and the R&D on the superconducting magnet coils, radiation shield, and vacuum vessel are performed. Recent progress in such physics and technology developments is presented.

A modification of the JT-60U is planned to a superconducting coil tokamak (JT-60SC) to establish steady-state operation of high beta plasma during a long duration of 100 s, and to ensure the plasma applicability of ferritic steel as reduced activation materials at reactor relevant break-even class plasma. This paper describes the detailed design of vacuum vessel, which has a unique structure for the cost effective manufacturing, and also the structural analysis results for the feasibility study. Eddy current and electromagnetic load analyses in case of stationary plasma disruption is performed and the result is used as the input for the static and dynamic analyses. As a result, the dynamic analysis is necessary to avoid unpredictable inertial force.
