Building future energy research base with KSTAR 1st plasma operation


Date of registration 2009-04-23

▣ KSTAR is expected to take the role of performing preceding research using pilot devices as the first tokamak facility in the world developed using the same superconducting material as ITER, Nb
3 Sn.

KSTAR achieved excess result than its original target parameter. 133KA plasma current and 249ms pulse length

KSTAR 1st plasma target : 1.5 tesla magnetic field, 100KA plasma current, 100ms pulse length

- Successful achievement of the 2nd harmonic ECH pre-ionization for the lower voltage plasma discharge and superconducting magnet usage scenario

Successful operation of the superconducting tokamak in the first trial without any defect to prevent operation and plasma experiment
