COLLOQUIUM: Functional Capabilities and Design of the ITER EC H&CD System
A 24MW Electron Cyclotron (EC) system operating at 170 GHz and 3600 s pulse length is to be installed on ITER. The EC plant shall deliver 20MW of this power to the plasma for Heating and Current Drive (H&CD) applications. The EC system is designed for plasma initiation, central heating, current drive, current profile tailoring, and Magneto-hydrodynamic control (in particular, sawteeth and Neo-classical Tearing Mode) in the flat-top phase of the plasma. This talk will review the technical design and the functionalities of the EC system.
