Abstract

Diagnostics in ITER are supported by big structures called port plugs, the second main function of which is to ensure a sufficient shielding against neutrons and gammas. Regarding the integration of diagnostics in equatorial port plugs, a new approach is under study, which consists in installing the diagnostics in "drawers". This paper describes the recent work which has been performed in Europe on the integration of diagnostics in drawers in the Equatorial Port Plug 1 (EPP1). First the methodology which has been followed to progress on the integration of the diagnostics in this port plug is described and the resulting arrangement of diagnostics is shown. Then a special attention is paid to the integration of the two main diagnostics of EPP1, namely the visible/infrared wide angle viewing system and the radial neutron camera. Finally the preliminary design of the drawers of EPP1, in particular the shielding modules around the diagnostics, is presented, and the preliminary results of the analyses performed to validate this design are provided. © 2011 IEEE.
