Abstract

Nuclear fusion could ensure a large-scale, safe, environment-friendly and virtually inexhaustible source of energy. A nuclear fusion facility can be considered as a complex electrical machine with many power supplies and electrical systems. This paper presents a survey of the main features of the power supplies in nuclear fusion facilities (tokamaks). The main characteristics in terms of nominal ratings, operational parameters and performances are shown and compared for many experiments, as ITER, JT-60SA, EAST, KSTAR, JET, ASDEX, FTU and DTT.
