To perform and follow-up the activities related to the engineering design, integration, interfaces, procurement, installation and commissioning of the ITER In-Vessel Coil (IVC) power supply system.
To integrate the engineering design of the IVC power supply system with ITER’s plant-level Instrumentation and Control (I&C) systems.
To perform the in-field engineering activities during the installation and commissioning of the IVC power supply system
The IVC power supply system consists of one VS3 power supply (to drive a VS3 coil) and 27 Edge Localized Modes (ELM) power supplies (to drive 27 separate ELM coils).
The VS3 power supply will consist of a 22kV switchgear and stepdown transformer, a front-end rectifier, a large energy storage capacity bank, a 80kA/2.4kV switching-mode inverter operating in pulsed mode, high current mechanical safety switches, cooling systems, and electronics control systems.
The ELM power supplies are likely to be split into several groups. Each group will consists of a 22kV switchgear and stepdown transformer, a front-end rectifier, a DC link capacity bank, and several separate switching-mode inverters at 15kA and a few hundred volts operating in continuous mode, high current mechanical safety switches, cooling systems, and electronics control systems.
Please note that an organizational restructuring is planned in accordance with the needs of the organization and the evolution of the project phases. In this context, the unit of assignment of the present position may be updated in late 2019, early 2020.
