- A refined design of the toroidal field (TF) coil system for the Oak Ridge Tokamak Experimental Power Reactor (EPR) study is presented. This design is based on cable conductor cooled by force-flow supercritical helium. It uses superconducting multifilamentary Nb/sub 3/Sn for a maximum design field of 11 T at the coil windings. A hybrid system which uses NbTi at low field regions is recommended. The coil structure consists of stainless steel segments welded together to form a continuous stiff honeycomb. Conductor optimization and stability analysis specifically applicable to the forced-flow cooled conductors are given.
