Abstract

The Divertor Tokamak Test (DTT) facility will be the link between ITER and DEMO as regards the study of the power exhaust in the divertor structure. In order to accomplish this goal, the Italian DTT will be a complete superconducting tokamak with 45 MW of additional power coupled to the plasma. According to the last requirements, the DTT coil power supplies are designed to achieve a toroidal field of 6 T and a 5.5 MA plasma in single-null configuration, but also to achieve double-null (with plasma at 5.5 MA), snow-flake (4.5 MA), super-X (3 MA) and other advanced configurations. This paper presents the conceptual design of the DTT power supply and electrical systems, including the site layout, the distribution networks, the expected scenarios and the mechanisms for breakdown and emergency discharge. In particular, the main rationales for the selection of the power supply topology are summarized. The power demand from the grid, presented in the various design options, can reach values above 300 MVA, including the contribution of the additional heating and current drive systems and of the auxiliary services.
