Non-Planar Modular Field Coils for W7-X

Non-planar Modular Field Coils for W7-X

As a member of the "Wendelstein" consortium, Babcock Noell manufactures the superconducting, non-planar modular field coils for the Wendelstein 7–X fusion experiment. The specific form of the coils enables a continuous confinement of plasma.

The specified values required using brand new approaches for producing these coils and their components.
