Synopsis:

Students will learn details on the ITER basic parameters and components of ITER: the superconducting magnets, vacuum pumping, fuel cycle, cryoplant, nuclear safety, operation scenarios, ITER plasma diagnostics, schedule of construction and operation. Besides, history of the project, forms of international collaboration, projects IFMIF and DEMO as well as major fusion research centres in the world will be presented.
