COLLOQUIUM: Recent results and near-term plans for Wendelstein 7-X

Dr. Thomas Sunn Pedersen, Director of Stellarator Edge and Divertor Physics
Max-Planck Institute of Plasma Physics

The world's most advanced stellarator, Wendelstein 7-X, located in Greifswald, Germany, has as its goal to demonstrate the fusion reactor relevance of the optimized stellarator. The experiment is built for steady-state operation, featuring 70 superconducting coils, up to 10 MW of steady-state ECRH heating, and actively cooled plasma-facing components.  In this talk I will summarize the main results of the first operation phase (OP1.1) and talk about plans for operation in OP1.2.
