Abstract

The Equilibrium Field (EF) System forms an important part of the TFTR Poloidal Field System. It consists of four coils which are wound concentric with the vacuum vessel. Interlaced between EF coils are four 4kV, 24kA converters, a 3MJ capacitor bank and coil overvoltage protection circuitry. The four 3MJ capacitor banks are used for plasma compression. The system requirements and the method of system optimization are outlined together with a detailed analysis of EF system operation. A computer aided performance analysis is also presented.
