In this paper we compute the electromagnetic loads (forces, torques, Joule losses) on passive conductors of the international thermonuclear experimental reactor (ITER) fusion device, currently under construction, following a disruption event, i.e., the sudden loss of magnetic confinement. An original integral formulation is used, able to automatically deal with complex topologies like the ones to be studied. Non-isotropic homogenized resistivities are used to take into account fine geometrical details. A suitable inverse problem is solved in order to compute the forcing terms.

Abstract

In this paper we compute the electromagnetic loads (forces, torques, Joule losses) on passive conductors of the international thermonuclear experimental reactor (ITER) fusion device, currently under construction, following a disruption event, i.e., the sudden loss of magnetic confinement. An original integral formulation is used, able to automatically deal with complex topologies like the ones to be studied. Non-isotropic homogenized resistivities are used to take into account fine geometrical details. A suitable inverse problem is solved in order to compute the forcing terms.
