The TF coils for ITER will use the concept of a circular thin walled Nb3Sn cable in conduit superconductor completely in an insulated groove in steel plates to form the coil pancakes. This concept is being demonstrated by the fabrication of a TFMC (Toroidal Field Model Coil) for ITER. The coil will be tested during 1999 in the TOSKA facility at FZK, Karlsruhe, using the EURATOM LCT coil to provide an external field system.
