Gyrotron for ITER EC
Garching (Germany), 2007
Supply contract for the delivery of a superconducting magnet system, in the framework of the development of a 2 MW, CW, coaxial cavity gyrotron at 170 GHz for the ITER Electron Cyclotron (EC) system, a joint development effort undertaken by associations and industry adhering to the EFDA Technical Work Programme. The scope of supply, completed in 2007, included a superconducting magnet system consisting of the magnet itself, realized in NbTi, its cryostat containing several superconducting windings, cryogenic control system, quench protection system and their relative ancillary systems necessary to operate the magnets reliably at the desired performance. The cryostat is made of 316 L / 316 LN stainless steel components assembled by welding by ASG qualified personnel. The cryostat has been designed and manufactured according to the European pressure vessel code EN 13445.
