Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT)

Almudena Rueda & Jenifer Serna, EcosimPro/PROOSIS

EA participated in the 28th International Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT) held in San Sebastián, Spain. This symposium is the foremost event on an international scale in the field of fusion. It brought together a large number of scientists, against the backdrop of the development of ITER.

The symposium provided guests with access to information about ITER and the field of nuclear fusion as a whole in several communication sessions and presentations.

As part of this event, EA submitted the work performed in the modelling of the TBS (Test Blanket Systems), which involved the development of a set of simulation libraries in EcosimPro. The simulation of these systems is especially useful to provide support to engineering in areas such as the selection of alternatives, study of materials, testing of the system at different operating stages, etc. The characteristics of the modelled system, as well as the details of the model finally used and the results of the different simulations were explained in detail to a large number of guests interested in the subject.
