Abstract

Cryogenics has a heavy impact on the overall cost of the experimental fusion plants, and the current approach to define cryogenics is not optimized in terms of energy efficiency. In order for future fusion reactors to produce energy for the grid, the energy consumption required by the cryoplant must be optimized to improve the final efficiency of the entire fusion power plant. We provide in this paper some background information useful in defining cryogenics for the future fusion power plants with a specific approach to capital and operational cost reduction.
