SIno-French Fusion Energy centeR
news | fusion
is of increasing importance in fusion energy research. It is needed not only for
better understanding Fusion Science, and analyzing the existing experiments, but
also to prepare future experiments as well as to design the future
The IMAS infrastructure
(Integrated Modeling Analysis Suite)promoted by ITER Organization is a modeling
framework for carrying out multi-machine multi-physics modeling, enabling access
to data from multiple experiments, as well as facilitating the exchange and use
of generic physics models and computational tools.
The objective of the
present 3-year R&D SIFFER project is to join the French and Chinese
competences and form a Sino-French IMAS Team to carry out simulations and
analyses of experimental data from our fusion devices (EAST, HL-2A and WEST) and
to prepare the experiments in ITER, CFETR (China Fusion Engineering Test
Reactor), or HL-2M (under construction at Southwestern Institute of Physics,
Chengdu). The joint Team will be pioneering the use of IMAS for the scientific
exploitation of tokamak experiments.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
