①Self-sust. burn

②Long burn

To establish vision for commercialization

for a period of 2030-2050, it

- should operate in steady state
(for example, continuously for 1year)

- should achieve high beta
(N=3.5(SSTR)-5.5(CREST))

- should operate reliably (less than 1
off-normal event in 2 years) at least towards the end of operating period.

- Extension of the flexibility in the plasma shape is key issue for a high-bN plasma operation where the research target of NCT is addressed.
Observed in DIII-D experiment [M.R. Wade et al., PoP 8 (2001) 2208]

- In order to improve a shape parameter, low aspect ratio as well as high elongation and high triangularity is considered in NCT design.

Matsukawa’s presentation

Criteria : Divertor pumping speed ≥ 100m3/s -> X-point height limit

Leg length limit

- - With the trade-off of divertor pumping, S-parameter goes up to 8 at A ~ 2.6 in NCT-2 design.
- With the divertor pumping of ≥100 m3/s, S-parameter ~ 7 is expected.
- - Restrict of causes the decrease of S in low A.

Flexibility in plasma shape and aspect ratio is extended in consistent with the sufficient divertor performance.

Kurita’s presentation

- Dependence of critical bN on plasma aspect ratio for n=1 and n=2 mode is estimated as a function of the ratio of rW/a (ERATO-J code).
- Critical bN increases in lower aspect ratio, which suggests the advantage of low aspect ration on N.
- optimization of pressure profile is being studied.
- Critical N dependence on shape factor S will be presented by Kurita’s talk.

- The shape and aspect ratio are important parameters for NCT.
- Recent evaluation for the designs, there is a strong probability that NCT-2 option which has A≥2.6, ≤2, S≤7 and BT≤3T will be selected as National Centralized Tokamak.
