The test cell configuration under IFMIF-DONES condition [in press]

Tian, Kuo; Arbeiter, Frederik; Gordeev, Sergej; Gröschel, Friedrich; Qiu, Yuefeng

The test cell (TC) in IFMIF-DONES (International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility – Demo Oriented NEutron Source) is the meeting area of the three major systems (test systems, lithium systems, and accelerator systems) to host the irradiation test module, lithium target assembly and the end section of the accelerator line. Although the design of the TC, to a large extent, inherits that of the reference IFMIF-EVEDA (Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activities) TC, design justifications are required to solve the existing major open issues such as cavitation of the lithium flow, activation and maintainability of key components, and etc. In this paper, these major open issues of the reference TC layout are addressed and a TC reconfiguration proposal, featuring arranging the lithium quench tank inside the TC, is introduced. The two concepts are investigated, analyzed, and compared on the aspects of lithium flow stability, tritium generation rate, key component maintenance scenarios, irradiation shielding, and in-TC components arrangement.
