  1. 1. Plasma-Facing Components in Tokamaks : Material Modification and Fuel Retention

    Author : Darya Ivanova; Marek Rubel; Bernard Pégourié; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; magnetic confinement fusion; plasma-facing components; plasma-facing materials; fuel inventory; erosion and deposition;

    Abstract : Fuel inventory and generation of carbon and metal dust in a tokamak are perceived to be serious safety and economy issues for the steady-state operation of a fusion reactor, e.g. ITER. READ MORE

  2. 2. Material migration in tokamaks: Studies of deposition processes and characterisation of dust particles

    Author : Armin Weckmann; Marek Rubel; Per Petersson; Daniel Primetzhofer; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tokamak; fusion; plasma; material migration; particle transport; TEXTOR; PWI; plasma-wall interaction; plasma facing components; PFC; PFM; plasma facing materials; ALT limiter; MoF6; tracer experiment; molybdenum hexafluoride; future energy source; fuel retention; deuterium retention;

    Abstract : Thermonuclear fusion may become an attractive future power source. The most promising of all fusion machine concepts is the tokamak. Despite decades of active research, still huge tasks remain before a fusion power plant can go online. One of these important tasks deals with the interaction between the fusion plasma and the reactor wall. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fuel retention and fuel removal from first wall components in tokamaks

    Author : Darya Ivanova; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasma physics; Plasmafysik;

    Abstract : Fuel inventory and generation of carbon and metal dust in a tokamak are perceived to be serious safety and economy issues for a steady-state operation of a fusion reactor, e.g. ITER. These topics have been explored in the on-going Ph. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Fate of Sulfur during Oxy-Fuel Combustion

    Author : Daniel Fleig; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pulverized coal combustion; oxy-coal; SO3; Oxy-fuel; SO2; sulfur;

    Abstract : Oxy-fuel combustion, where air is replaced by O2 and recycled flue-gas to enrich combustion products, is one of the main CO2 capture technologies suitable for large-scale coal-fired power plants. The changed combustion conditions in oxy-fuel combustion influences the sulfur chemistry, which has recently been the subject of increased attention due to the importance of sulfur species in corrosion and flue-gas cleaning issues.

  5. 5. Experimental and theoretical studies of nitride fuels

    Author : Merja Pukari; Janne Wallenius; Toru Ogawa; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fast reactor fuel; ab-initio modelling; fuel fabrication; inert matrix nitride fuel;

    Abstract : With respect to nitrides being considered as potential fast reactor fuels, research is conducted on the out-of-pile thermophysical properties, sintering and fabrication processes, gas migration mechanisms, self-diffusion and point defect behaviour of actinide nitrides, their surrogate materials, and the inert matrix material ZrN . The experimental research, carried out in the framework of qualifying fuel for the European Lead Cooled Training Reactor (ELECTRA), shows that sintered ZrN and (Dy,Zr)N pellet densities are influenced by the oxygen concentration in the material.
