Abstract

The ITER Central Solenoid (CS) modules are under fabrication by the US ITER organization and its subcontractors. US ITER will supply seven modules to the ITER Organization (IO), six of which will be assembled in a stack that forms the ITER Central Solenoid, the last one being spare. The first module, namely CSM 1 was manufactured by General Atomics (GA) and went through Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) including high voltage testing, Paschen testing and then cold test at 4.5 K and up to 40.0 kA in order to demonstrate compliance with coil performance requirements. The paper focuses on the results of the first CS Module thermal hydraulic characterization without current (and field). Pressure drops, transit time, and thermal coupling between pancakes are presented. Analysis results and tests are also compared.
