NCSX Physics Meeting
16 October 2003
Acquire the physics data needed to assess the attractiveness of
compact stellarators; advance understanding of 3D fusion science.
Initial operation - shake down systems
Field Line Mapping
1.5MW Initial Experiments - (1.5MW NBI, partial PFCs)
3MW Heating - (3MW NBI, PFC liner)
Confinement and High Beta - (~6 MW, 3rd gen. PFCs)
Long Pulse – (pumped divertor)
Diagnostic upgrades throughout to match research goals
Phases IV – VI may last multiple years.
(equipment included in MIE project cost)
Research will Proceed in Phases
Overview of Initial Research Phases
Design and begin fabrication of diagnostic upgrades for Phase III and IV.
Stellarator Edge Modeling; Design and begin fabrication of PFCs for Phase III and IV
Development of discharge control strategy, modeling.
Design of internal trim coils for Phase IV.
Design of low-power RF loading study, for Phase IV.
Consistent with Acquisition Execution Plan
