题目：Using Systems Codes for Reactor Design
报告人: James Morris [Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE),UK]
Systems codes analysis for nuclear fusion reactors provide a useful way of exploring the design space quickly and allow for investigations of issues with design points before detailed work begins.
The PROCESS systems code is the one developed and used at UKAEA (CCFE) and is the primary systems code for the EUROfusion DEMO program. In the talk I will describe the recent work we have been doing to the code, including:
- a new transport model
- a 1-D divertor model
- superconductor magnet modelling
I will also outline what direction we plan on taking the code and how best to use it to inform machine design.
I graduated in 2010 with a Masters in Physics from the University of Bristol.
After graduating I joined JET as a plasma operations physicist and worked in the plasma operations group. I was responsible for the disruption database and the magnet diagnostic on JET. I also for some time maintained the coil protection system software for JET.
In 2013 I moved to the power plant technology group to work on systems codes. Since then I have worked on a variety of the models in PROCESS, primarily on the magnet model, blankets, costs (plus remote handling) and availability as well as being the primary programmer for PROCESS.
