Abstract

This paper presents the analyses that led to the optimization of the system configuration for the toroidal field supply. Special attention is given to the analysis of the thyristor characteristics to determine the most desirable device parameters. The designed system consists of two converters, each rated 4 kV and 74 kA, operating in 24-pulse mode and built with identical 6-pulse bridges connected in series and parallel. The selection of transformers and auxiliary equipment like switches, overvoltage protection devices are presented together with the interconnection between the converters and coils. There is very little, if any, information available in the literature on this important engineering aspect of the Tokamak system. Finally, the principles of the control and fault detection system are outlined.
