MHD Modell eines HCLL Blankets 

MHD mock-up of a HCLL blanket

 

Magnetohydrodynamics

The nuclear fusion research program is part of the European Fusion Development Agreement.
IKET is performing experimental and theoretical research for the liquid metal breeding blanket development in Europe. Two blanket concepts are presently under development and the following issues are investigated:

1. Helium Cooled Lead-Lithium (HCLL) blanket

  • Electrical flow coupling
  • Flow partitioning
  • Pressure drop

2. Dual Coolant Lead-Lithium (DCLL) blanket

  • Influence of insulating inserts in ducts
  • Pressure drop reduction
  • Flow distribution
