Abstract
The extensive design effort for KSTAR has been focused on two major aspects of the KSTAR project mission - steady-state-operation capability and advan ced tokamak physics. The steady state aspect of the mission is reflected in the choice of superconducting magnets, provision of actively cooled in-ves sel components, and long pulse current drive and heating systems. The advan ced tokamak aspect of the mission is incorporated in the design features as sociated with flexible plasma shaping, double null divertor and passive sta bilizers, internal control coils and a comprehensive set of diagnostics. Su bstantial progress in engineering has been made on superconducting magnets, the vacuum vessel, plasma facing components and power supplies. The new KS TAR experimental facility with cryogenic system and deionized water cooling and main power systems has been designed, and the construction work is und er way for completion in 2004.
