    Demountable Toroidal Field Magnets for Use in a Compact Modular Fusion Reactor

    Get PDF
    A concept of demountable toroidal field magnets for a compact fusion reactor is discussed. The magnets generate a magnetic field of 9.2 T on axis, in a 3.3 m major radius tokamak. Subcooled YBCO conductors have a critical current density adequate to provide this large magnetic field, while operating at 20 K reduces thermodynamic cooling cost of the resistive electrical joints. Demountable magnets allow for vertical replacement and maintenance of internal components, potentially reducing cost and time of maintenance when compared to traditional sector maintenance. Preliminary measurements of contact resistance of a demountable YBCO electrical joint between are presented

    A Method of Verified Computations for Solutions to Semilinear Parabolic Equations Using Semigroup Theory

    This paper presents a numerical method for verifying the existence and local uniqueness of a solution for an initial-boundary value problem of semilinear parabolic equations. The main theorem of this paper provides a sufficient condition for a unique solution to be enclosed within a neighborhood of a numerical solution. In the formulation used in this paper, the initial-boundary value problem is transformed into a fixed-point form using an analytic semigroup. The sufficient condition is derived from Banach\u27s fixed-point theorem. This paper also introduces a recursive scheme to extend a time interval in which the validity of the solution can be verified. As an application of this method, the existence of a global-in-time solution is demonstrated for a certain semilinear parabolic equation
