WBS 5.2 ELECTRON CYCLOTRON HEATING & CURRENT DRIVE

Main Transmission Line for EC H&CD

Procurement Package 5.2-2
"Transmission Line "
ITER Cost 2001 for Sharing: 17.90 kIUA
Sharing: EU = 88%; ITER (fund) = 12%
Function, Scope of Supply:

RF power at the millimeter wavelength (electron cyclotron frequency in the ITER magnetic field) is launched into the plasma interacting and directly heating the electrons. The energy is then transferred to the ions by collisions.
This procurement package is related to the manufacture of the related lines providing the transmission of the energy at very high frequency from the sources (gyrotrons) to the antennas.

Description, Technologies :

Cylindrical wave guides made in aluminium, under vacuum, various copper elements water cooled and measurement equipment.
