- An ignition tokamak reactor design has been obtained which represents a starting point for the conceptual design of a 1000 MW/sub e/ commercial system. The design includes Nb/sub 3/Sn superconducting coils (TF, OH, and SF), water-cooled fissile blanket (e.g., uranium oxide), positive-ion based neutral beams with no direct energy recovery, and an ignited plasma with a = 0.9 m and an aspect ratio A = 4.0. The TF coil bore has a vertical bore of 7 m and a horizontal bore of 5 m both of which are a factor of two larger than the corresponding bore dimensions of the LCP (Large Coil Project) TF coil. The plasma is characterized as follows: stability factor q = 2.5, Z/sub eff/ approx. 1, poloidal beta ..beta../sub p/ less than or equal to A, a elongation delta in the range between 1.6 and 1.7. A number of potential operating conditions for the plasma and device have been identified for which the plasma beta ..beta.. lies within the range from 6.5% to 7.3%, and the plasma temperature has an average value between 11 keV and 12.5 keV. The design was obtained using the computer code COAST and represents a self-consistent sizing and costing result.
