JT-60SA superconducting magnet system

Abstract : The JT-60SA experiment is one of the three projects to be undertaken in Japan as part of the Broader Approach Agreement, conducted jointly by Europe and Japan, and complementing the construction of ITER in Europe. The superconducting magnet system for JT-60SA consists of 18 Toroidal Field (TF) coils, a Central Solenoid (CS) and six Equilibrium Field (EF) coils. The TF magnet generates the field to confine charged particles in the plasma, the CS provides the inductive flux to ramp up plasma current and contribute to plasma shaping and the EF coils provide the position equilibrium of plasma current and the plasma vertical stability. The six EF coils are attached to the TF coil cases through supports with flexible plates allowing radial displacements. The CS assembly is supported from the bottom of the TF coils through its pre-load structure. The design status of the JT-60SA superconducting magnetic system is reviewed.
