Mr Antonio Masiello (European Commission)
The development of the Neutral beam system for ITER has been progressing well thanks to the start of the operations of the ELISE (Extraction from a Large Ion Source Experiment) at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Garching, Germany, and to the big effort devoted to the establishment of the ITER Neutral Beam (NB) Test Facility in Padua, Italy. This paper presents the main experimental results of ELISE, the status of the manufacturing activities for the components of the NB test facility and the progress made in the design of the mechanical components and in that of auxiliary and power supplies systems.
