Abstract

The future JET (Joint European Torus) program will be mainly focused on the consolidation of the physics basis of the main ITER scenarios. This gives a strong motivation for examining the feasibility of the construction and implementation of an ECRH (Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating) system in JET for an intensive exploitation before the start of ITER. To advance this feasibility study towards the approval of the project, collaboration between the E4J (ECRH for JET) project team and the KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) design team of the ITER ECH Port Plug was decided. The aim of this collaboration was to raise the principal design requirements and to establish a rough design of the main components of an E4J system. © 2011 IEEE.
