Abstract

In this work the analysis of the effects of the poloidal currents flowing on the cooling piping of the divertor armour tiles is carried out. To deal with the complexity of the problem a parametric solving scheme, starting from the nominal plasma current value, was adopted to contemplate the great variability of the possible cases deriving from the experimental data base and to compensate the lack of knowledge due to the not well assessed theory on the plasma wall interaction. Further to overcame the difficulties in modeling the real design of the piping with the necessary spatial resolution to individuate the local current concentration areas the methodology illustrated here is based on shell interfaces for solving either the electric and the mechanical problem. This approach proved to be capable to highlight the critical design areas and was useful to suggest the relative remedial corrections. © American Nuclear Society.
