Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST)

EAST is one of Chinese national fusion project.

The main mission of the project is to develop an advanced superconducting tokamak

  • Explore and demonstrate of steady-state operation with high plasma performance.

  • Investigate of advanced tokamak physics and demonstration of stationary H-mode operation.

  • Investigate of particle and heat fluxes handling on a time scale much longer than the wall equilibration time.

     EAST(HT-7U Superconducting Tokamak), a non-circular advanced steady-state plasma experimental device, was rectified by the Leading Team of Science and Technology, the State Council on June 3, 1997 as a National Mega-Project of Science Research. Its scientific mission is to realize stable operation and carry out experiments on heating and confinement improvement under the tokamak advanced operation and finally realize the tokamak advanced operational mode.

           HT-7U will have a long pulse (60-1000s) capability, a flexible PF system, and auxiliary heating and current drive systems, and will be able to accommodate divertor heat loads that make it an attractive test facility for the development of advanced tokamak operating modes. HT-7U consists of nine sub-systems, namely superconducting tokamak device, cryogenic and refrigerator system, power supply system, control and data acquisition system, lower hybrid current drive (LHCD) system, ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) system, vacuum pumping and gas puffing system, diagnostic system, and water cooling system.

China participate ITER, the technology developed for EAST will be useful during the fabrication of ITER parts in China.
