Full fusion reactor integrated modelling

FusionCAT will develop multiphysics codes for the modelling of plasma and fusion reactors, which are systems of great physical, numerical and computational complexity. Multiple temporal and spatial scales are required.

Neutronics, tritium breeding and operational fuel cycle

FusionCAT will study areas such as impact of neutrons in the reactor, combustion cycle and connection between the breeding blanket and the tritium extraction system in order to achieve efficient energy production.

Fusion reactor studies

FusionCAT will carry out studies on technologies that are applicable to the reactor’s design, such as the use of HTS magnets, the assessment of the strength of the materials, and the implementation of an energy cycle.
