Abstract

The ITER Central Solenoid (CS) will be manufactured by assembling a stack of six modules, which are under fabrication by the US ITER organization and its subcontractors. The tests of the first CS Module have been performed at the premises of the General Atomics (GA) facility in Poway (US), in order to check compliance to the ITER requirements. Among other tests, the magnet was submitted to exponential dumps of the transport current from different initial values (10, 15, 20, 22.5, 25, 35, 40 kA) down to 0 kA. These tests are aimed at conducting DC breaker commissioning of the test facility and were used to measure the AC losses in the coil during electrodynamic transients. This paper presents the results of these measurements, along with a comparison with analytical computations of the losses in the magnet.
