A compact quasi-axisymmetric stellarator reactor
20th IEEE/NPSS Symposium onFusion Engineering, 2003.
We report the progress made in assessing the potential of compact, quasi-axisymmetric stellarators as powerproducing reactors. Using an aspect ratio A=4.5 configuration derived from NCSX and optimized with respect to the quasiaxisymmetry and MHD stability in the linear regime as an example, we show that a reactor of 1 GW(e) maybe realizable with a major radius ≤8 m. This is significantly smaller than the designs of stellarator reactors attempted before. We further show the design of modulardoi:10.1109/fusion.2003.1426646 fatcat:h4jqeei4abedljd5ghhw6ue2cu
