7 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/20117/16 7 The CEA strategy ST1: Participating in the realisation of ITER and the Broader Approach projects a wide spectrum to maintain at national level a global assessment capability on fusion energy development a wide spectrum to maintain at national level a global assessment capability on fusion energy development ST4: Developing a capability for fusion reactor conceptual studies. ST3: Enhancing and focusing physical understanding along empirical and first principle approaches, ST2: Preparing the operation of next generation devices JT 60 SA Objective 1 Objective 2 Objective 4

8 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/20118/16 8 The CEA strategy IRFM overall challenge, a progressive and challenging transition to a fusion research focused on ITER M3: Securing the resources necessary in achieving these aims. M2: Developing strong national, European and international networks and initiating close industrial cooperation M1: Adapting its organisation and its manpower Objective 3

9 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/20119/16 CEA strategy implementation guidelines Direct contribution to the development and construction of ITER, and of BA elements Preparation of the scientific exploitation of ITER: Heating and current drive, PFC’s,…, and key physics issues (turbulence, ELMs, disruption mitigation, plasma control …) by dedicating Tore Supra to this aim and prototyping the relevant tools Keeping a high standard at the forefront of physics activity (experiment and theory/modelling) CEA also aims at developing a global vision of fusion as a potential energy source (long term aim): reactor studies have been re-activated CEA has the ambition to be a major contributor, to the experimental scientific and operational program of ITER. CEA has the ambition to be a major contributor, to the experimental scientific and operational program of ITER.

10 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/201110/16 Development&construction of ITER & BA projects Selected Topics: Design Integration Diagnostics (Vis/IR PFC monitoring, magnetics, reflectometry) ICRH & LHCD Cryomagnetism Plasma facing components, Test blanket modules 10 7 m JT 60SA TF coil LHCD full implementation in ITER

11 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/201111/16 Preparation of the scientific exploitation of ITER 11 TITAN JET W7-X Selected Topics: Control of long pulse discharges in actively cooled environment, Platforms&test facilities for ITER Integrated modelling, Plasma engineering & real time control Ab initio simulations

12 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/201112/16 Proposal: Turn Tore Supra into a Test Bed besides ITER, dedicated mostly to tungsten (W) actively cooled PFCs (requires an X- point configuration) Motivation : – Risk minimisation (manufacturing and operation) on ITER relevant technology – Unique capability within the decade – Key for ITER, but also for EAST,JT60-SA, W7X... Feasability study achieved in 2010, welcomed by high level international panel and by French Gvt Evaluation panel; conceptual study underway A mutation of the Tore Supra Facility is proposed Dedicating Tore Supra to ITER preparation and risk minimisation WEST : W Environment in Steady-state Tokamaks

13 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/201113/16 Preparing for the numerical tokamak (« VENUS ») 13 GYSELA Electric potential Fluctuations Through intensive collaborations (Fédération de Recherche, EU, …) IRFM is participating to a world class tools development, with a strong focus on its scientific outputs HPCs yield access to ab initio calculations, allowing to address fully developed tokamak physics (« numerical tokamak » + confrontation to experiment) JOREK

14 Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research – Roadmap workshop – 13/04/201114/16 Power Plant Physics & Technology System code for DEMO (modularity, evolutivity, ITM-based) Plasma scenario; magnets; blanket; divertor; He-cooling H&CD systems optimisation using scenario Exploring innovative PFC concepts & materials (collaboration with FR-FCM) 14 Developing a capability for fusion reactor conceptual studies
