The cryogenic plant of the tokamak JT60-SA has successfully pass one of the most demanding acceptance tests.
September 27, 2016, the facility was given to nominal mode with all compressors at full capacity; a series of high power pulses were applied to all cryogenic loops in order to reproduce the power profile during operation of the plasma. All parameters (temperature, pressure, helium level) behaved exactly as expected.
Congratulations to the international team for this success!
