Abstract
The Inner and Outer modules of the Central Solenoid Model Coil (CSMC) were built by US and Japanese home teams in collaboration with European and Russ ian teams to demonstrate the feasibility of a superconducting Central Solen oid for ITER and other large tokamak reactors. The CSMC mass is about 120 t , OD is about 3.6 m and the stored energy is 640 MJ at 46 kA and peak field of 13 T. Testing of the CSMC and the CS Insert took place at the Japan Ato mic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) from mid March until mid August 2000. This paper presents the main results of the tests performed.
