2 14th IEA RFP Workshop – Padova, April 26th-28th Outline Description of the RFX-mod thermal measurement system Purpose of the activity: correlation of plasma-wall interaction with thermal measurements Approach: 1.development of models for thermal characterization of tiles, vacuum vessel and toroidal support structure 2.development of an integrated thermal model 3.inference of plasma parameters from thermal experimental measurements, by using the integrated model 4.comparison of the deduced plasma parameters with that ones obtained from other measurements RFX past analyses

3 14th IEA RFP Workshop – Padova, April 26th-28th Thermal measurements on RFX-mod Plasma-Wall Interaction (PWI) diagnostic by correlating thermal fluxes to the thermocouple (TC) measurements The thermal measurement system is important for: Machine diagnostic to control: – the achievement of the operational limits due to high heat fluxes on the graphite tiles – irregular temperature due to localized plasma-wall interaction – temperature increase due to Joule effect in the coils
