Abstract

The DEMO design has to face a number of challenges. According to the DEMO device limitations, the power load impinging on the Plasma Facing Components (PFCs) in the plasma Single Null (SN) magnetic configuration (which is for DEMO as in ITER the baseline configuration) clearly underlines the need to explore alternative divertor concepts. In this paper, a comparison between the Single and Double Null (DN) configurations is proposed. In particular, a comparative electromagnetic analysis of the magnetic configurations is performed in terms of vertical stability (VS) and disruptions in the 2D axisymmetric case.
