Abstract

As a joint European effort an ITER Toroidal Field Model Coil (TFMC) was manufactured in industry and has been assembled in the TOSKA test facility of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. After cool down and acceptance tests of the racetrack shaped coil made of a Nb3Sn cable in conduit conductor the first test campaign started in July 2001 reaching the design current of 80 kA within one week.
