Abstract

FAST (Fusion Advanced Studies Torus) is a new machine that the Italian Fusion Association is proposing to the European scientific community as a Satellite Tokamak to support ITER exploitation and to anticipate DEMO relevant physics and technology. As recommended by the European Fusion Panel, FAST will not use Tritium (unnecessary to address burning plasma peculiar physics) to avoid the problems associated to this element. Therefore to understand the alpha-particles behaviors in burning plasmas, fast ions accelerated by powerful heating and current drive systems (ICRH, ECRH, LHCD) will be used. This paper describes the recent advancements on the design of FAST and its LHCD system. ©2009 IEEE.
