From September 10th to 15th, the 15th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology took place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The ISFNT is one of the main international events for the nuclear fusion field. The symposium focuses on both near-term and long-term fusion devices and reactor technologies, with special attention to science, engineering, experiments, facilities, modelling, analysis, design, and safety.
At this symposium, a poster was presented showcasing the capability of EcosimPro and the TRITIUM toolkit for modelling tritium transport, specifically a Water-Cooled Lithium Lead Test Blanket Module (WCLL TBM). TRITIUM toolkit contains first-principles models of the various terms involved in tritium transport such as: generation, advection, chemical reactions, permeation, diffusion, trapping, recombination and dissociation. Together with the TBM concept, the most relevant ancillary systems are considered as well. Aiming at having a global perspective of tritium behaviour all over the TBS at any time, the following set of significant variables are computed: tritium inventory, permeation rates and recovery.
