The specification of the large magnets needed in future fusion reactors based on the tokamak concept is presented as an inverse electromagnetic problem. The influence of the eddy currents flowing in the metallic structure is illustrated. Currently used computational tools and related mathematical formulations are reviewed.

Abstract

The specification of the large magnets needed in future fusion reactors based on the tokamak concept is presented as an inverse electromagnetic problem. The influence of the eddy currents flowing in the metallic structure is illustrated. Currently used computational tools and related mathematical formulations are reviewed. The behavior predicted by the numerical models is in agreement with experimental measurements, as demonstrated by a campaign of code validation. Recent progress on the techniques for the identification of the plasma parameters and for the scenario optimization is presented.
