Abstract

This paper describes the result of the ITER feeder main busbar joint sample qualification test as confirmation of the requirement of busbar joint resistance, 2 nΩ at 70 kA at zero background field, as well as that of joint performance in various magnetic fields to investigate stability and current distribution characteristics in feeder-type joint box. The results support the quality of the joint manufacturing process for ITER main busbar joint. The qualification sample design was prepared to be tested in SULTAN facility. The SULTAN joint sample consists of joints to be qualified at the level of the peak field and upper terminations. In bottom joints, twin-box feeder-type praying hands configuration is applied. In upper terminations, one of them is made with solder-filled cable for optimum current distribution. The other takes the same length of the copper sole and contact with the busbar cable as those positioned in bottom of the sample. The sample undergoes a test program, which includes joint resistance measurement, ac losses, and stability margin test. The outcomes of those test programs are reported.
