Introduction to WEST Research Plan

Introduction to WEST Research Plan

How will the actively cooled tungsten components of the ITER divertor behave after hours of plasma discharge? Can performant plasmas be produced if plasma facing components are damaged ? How can the monitoring system be optimized for these components? These are some of the questions that ...

Headline 1 – Testing and operating ITER-grade Plasma Facing Components in tokamak

Headline 1 – Testing and operating ITER-grade Plasma Facing Components in tokamak

The Headline-1 is dedicated to testing tungsten actively cooled plasma facing components under a tokamak environment. The first priority of Headline-1 is risk minimization of PFC procurement and operation in ITER. Headline-1 is focused on assessing the power handling capabilities of tungsten ...

Headline 2 – Towards long pulse H-mode & steady-state operation

Headline 2 – Towards long pulse H-mode & steady-state operation

During phase 1, the development of H mode scenarios in a Tungsten environment will be tackled, both in support to Plasma Facing Components testing experiments requiring H mode and in preparation for long pulse H mode operation foreseen for phase 2. During this first phase of operation, the high ...
