     View Summary

    Concepts of the power exhaust and divertor design have been developed, with a high priority in the pre-conceptual design phase of the Japan-Europe broader approach DEMO design activity (BA DDA). Common critical issues are the large power exhaust and its fraction in the main plasma and divertor by the radiative cooling (P radtot/P heat 0.8). Different exhaust concepts in the main plasma and divertor have been developed for Japanese (JA) and European (EU) DEMOs. JA proposed a conventional closed divertor geometry to challenge large P sep/R p handling of 30-35 MW m-1 in order to maintain the radiation fraction in the main plasma at the ITER-level (f radmain = P radmain/P heat ∼ 0.4) and higher plasma performance. EU challenged both increasing f radmain to ∼0.65 and handling the ITER-level P sep/R p in the open divertor geometry. Power exhaust simulations have been performed by SONIC (JA) and SOLPS5.1 (EU) with corresponding P sep = 250-300 MW and 150-200 MW, respectively. Both results showed that large divertor radiation fraction (P raddiv/P sep 0.8) was required to reduce both peak q target (10 MW m-2) and T e,idiv. In addition, the JA divertor performance with EU-reference P sep of 150 MW showed benefit of the closed geometry to reduce the peak q target and T e,idiv near the separatrix, and to produce the partial detachment. Integrated designs of the water cooled divertor target, cassette and coolant pipe routing have been developed in both EU and JA, based on the tungsten (W) monoblock concept with Cu-alloy pipe. For year-long operation, DEMO-specific risks such as radiation embrittlement of Cu-interlayers and Cu-alloy cooling pipe were recognized, and both foresee higher water temperature (130 °C-200 °C) compared to that for ITER. At the same time, several improved technologies of high heat flux components have been developed in EU, and different heat sink design, i.e. Cu-alloy cooling pipes for targets and RAFM steel ones for the baffle, dome and cassette, was proposed in JA. The two approaches provide important case-studies of the DEMO divertor, and will significantly contribute to both DEMO designs.

     View Summary

    The final goal of this study is to develop a new kinetic simulation tool of plasmas, neutrals, and impurities in fusion edge plasmas. Taking into account the non-equilibrium and non-steady characteristics of electron energy distribution function (EEDF), we have done a dynamic simulation of the ELM (Edge Localized Mode). The effect of the ELM on the plasma detachment has been studied. Especially. the effects of the ELM on the MAR (Molecular Activated Recombination) has been analyzed. The results show that the vibrational excited molecules, which play a key for MAR, are effectively produced during the ELM heat pulse. Due to this enhancement, MAR rate is possibly enhanced after the ELM pulse. In addition, a new kinetic impurity transport model has been successfully developed. The model includes neo-classical transport effects of impurities, which becomes important under the steep density/temperature gradient in the core pedestal region before and after the ELM pulse.

    Control of the detached divertor plasma and the resultant reduction of the divertor heat load are one of the most critical issues on the fusion DEMO design study. In this study, understanding of the detached divertor plasma has progressed by analysis of the experimental data and development of the divertor simulation code has progressed. Control of the detached divertor plasma and reduction of the divertor heat load by using impurity seeding has been also investigated.
