1 Introduction to Fusion Physics Hartmut Zohm Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik Garching DPG Advanced Physics School The Physics of ITER Bad Honnef,

2 Energy from nuclear fusion Reduction of surface tension energy gain

3 Energy from nuclear fusion With increasing number of nuclei, electric repulsion starts to dominate binding energy has a maximum at A = 56 (iron)

4 Fusion needs close encounter of nuclei D + T = D' + T' Particles have to touch (10-15 m) in order to feel attractive strong force repulsive coulomb energy at that point around 400 kev due to quantum mechanics (tunneling), minimum energy is several 10 kev

5 Fusion needs close encounter of nuclei Deuterium (from sea water) Tritium (radioactive, bred from Lithium) D + T = He + n MeV 3.5 MeV He-nuclei (α-partcles) heat Fusion fuel 14.1 MeV neutrons heat reactor wall Particles have to touch (10-15 m) in order to feel attractive strong force repulsive coulomb energy at that point around 400 kev due to quantum mechanics (tunneling), minimum energy is several 10 kev

6 D-T reaction most favorable for energy gain Highest cross section with maximum at lowest energy At these energies, elastic collision still 100 x more likely than fusion crossed beam configurations would not be efficient enough have to confine the particles to allow many collisions thermal plasma

7 Reactor energetics: the Lawson criterion for nτ Ε α-heating compensates losses: radiative losses (Bremsstrahlung) heat conduction and convection τ E = W plasma /P loss ( energy confinement time ) leads to which has a minimum for nτ Ε = 2 x m -3 s at T = 20 kev Note: can be fulfilled quite differently (magnetic versus inertial fusion)

8 Figure of merit for fusion performance ntτ Power P loss needed to sustain plasma determined by thermal insulation: τ E = W plasma /P loss ( energy confinement time ) Fusion power increases with W plasma P fus ~ n D n T <σv> ~ n e2 T 2 ~ W plasma 2 Present day experiments: P loss compensated by external heating Q = P fus /P ext P fus /P loss ~ ntτ E Reactor: P loss compensated by α-(self)heating Q = P fus /P ext =P fus /(P loss -P α ) (ignited plasma)

9 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field Toroidal systems avoid end losses along magnetic field Need to twist field lines helically to compensate particle drifts

10 Field line geometry described by safety factor q q = number of toroidal windings number of poloidal windings

11 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field 'Stellarator': magnetic field exclusively produced by coils Example: Wendelstein 7-X (IPP Greifswald)

12 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field 'Tokamak': poloidal field component from current in plasma Simple concept, but not inherently stationary! Example: ASDEX Upgrade (IPP Garching)

13 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field 'Tokamak': poloidal field component from current in plasma Simple concept, but not inherently stationary! Example: ASDEX Upgrade (IPP Garching)

14 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field

15 Typical radial profiles in fusion experiments (schematic) T(r) n(r) p(r) Temperature profiles peaked on axis, density usually flatter, p= n k B T j(r) B pol (r) q(r) Tokamak current profiles peaked on axis (σ ~ T 3/2 is highest) B pol and safety factor q increase from centre to the edge

16 Energy confinement time determined by transport Simplest ansatz for heat transport: Diffusion due to binary collisions table top device (R 0.6 m) should ignite B collision Experimental finding: Anomalous transport, much larger heat losses Transport to the edge R Tokamaks: Ignition expected for R = 7.5 m

17 Energy confinement: empirical scaling laws In lack of a first principles physics model, ITER has been designed on the basis of an empirical scaling law very limited predictive capability, need first principles model

18 Energy Transport in Fusion Plasmas Anomalous transport determined by gradient driven turbulence (eddy size) 2 / (eddy lifetime) is of the order of experimental χ values

19 Plasma can be confined in a magnetic field

20 Plasma discharges can be subject to instabilities

21 Plasma discharges can be subject to instabilities Desaster β-limit, disruption Self-organisation sationarity of profiles j(r), p(r)

22 Plasma discharges can be subject to instabilities linearly stable linearly unstable Equilibrium p = j x B means force balance, but not necessarily stability Stability against perturbation has to be evaluated by stability analysis Mathematically: solve time dependent MHD equations linear stability: small perturbation, equilibrium unperturbed, exponentially growing eigenmodes nonlinear stability: finite peturbation, back reaction on equilibrium, final state can also be saturated instability

23 Free energies to drive MHD modes current driven instabilities pressure driven instabilities Ex.: kink mode (only tokamaks) Ex.: interchange mode (tokamak and stellarator) N.B.: also fast particle pressure (usually kinetic effects)!

24 Ideal and resistive MHD instabilities Ideal MHD: η = 0 flux conservation topology unchanged Resistive MHD: η 0 reconnection of field lines topology changes

25 Plasma wall interface from millions of K to 100s of K plasma wall interaction in well defined zone further away from core plasma allows plasma wall contact without destroying the wall materials provides particle control (retention of impurities, pumping of He ash)

26 Plasma wall interface from millions of K to 100s of K

27 Tokamaks have made Tremendous Progress figure of merit ntτ E doubles every 1.8 years JET tokamak in Culham (UK) has produced 16 MW of fusion power present knowledge has allowed to design a next step tokamak to demonstrate large scale fusion power production: ITER

28 With Wendelstein-7X, stellarators are catching up Complex technological problems have been solved operation of Wendelstein 7-X should demonstrate appropriate confinement (presently lagging behind that of tokamaks by ~ 1.5 generations) stellarators are intrinsically stationary (tokamaks are not)
