Date: 2019/07/17 Author: WU Sha

With the completion of coloring detection of the last conductor PF3UL01 92CAB029 in the procurement package of poloidal coil conductor (PF), the superconducting engineering laboratory of ASIPP has completed the production and testing tasks of all conductors for the ITER conductor procurement package

The ITER superconducting magnet system is powered by conductors from China, Japan, South Korea, the United States, Russia and the European Union.

the applied superconducting engineering laboratory of ASIPP undertook three conductor procurement package, six types of conductor production testing tasks, including the toroidal field (TF) coil conductor procurement package, poloidal field coil conductor (PF) procurement package, correction field coil and superconducting conductor transmission lines (CC&Feeder) procurement package to provide 13 TF conductor (7.5%), 64 PF conductors (69%) and 29 root CC&Feeder conductor (100% of the total).The conductor is made by NbTi and Nb3Sn respectively.

Among them, TF conductor procurement package and CC&Feeder conductor procurement package had been completed with the final delivery on January 22, 2016 and May 24, 2016 respectively. All production testing tasks of PF procurement package had been finished, and only 3 conductors remain waiting for the transport notification from the conductor receiver.

The research and development of conductor procurement package has achieved 100% localization, 100% samples have passed performance evaluation, and 100% ITER progress requirements have been met.

Ten years after the implementation of conductor procurement package, in response to ITER's first-grade quality requirements, ASIPP superconducting engineering research laboratory, combined with the quality system of Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, has established a quality management system suitable for conductor procurement package, effectively guaranteeing the quality control in the production and testing process.
