Nuclear Fusion

Babcock Noell designs and manufactures conventional and superconducting magnets for use in nuclear fusion applications. Our performance range extends from water-cooled copper coils to complex three-dimensionally shaped superconducting magnet systems. One of our specialities are magnets with a coil foundation which transfer the forces from the coil to the mechanical structures.

EDIPO Projekt

EDIPO Projekt show reference
BM_ED_01

The ITER project requires a large dipole magnet for testing and qualifying samples of the original superconductor for the ITER coils under realistic conditions in its magnetic field.

The required field of approx. 12.5 T necessitates Nb3Sn as the superconductor; since the material, however, is very brittle, it can only be used for winding in its unreacted state.

After winding, the conductor was reacted at a temperature of about 650°C.

Customer:
EFDA-CSU, Garching

Project duration:
2006 - 2011

Technical Data:
Superconductor: Nb3Sn CICC
Operating Current: 17.600 A
Operating Temperature: 4,5 K ca.
Weight of a Magnet: approx. 18.000 kg
Length of Cold Mass: approx. 3 m
Dimension of Sample Aperture: 144 x 94 mm2
