The JT-60SA project is implemented by Japan and Europe, and its construction is progressing toward the first plasma in 2019. The JT-60SA device, a highly shaped large superconducting tokamak with a variety of plasma control actuators, has been designed in order to contribute to ITER and to complement ITER in all the major areas of fusion plasma development necessary to decide DEMO reactor construction: Using ITER- and DEMO-relevant plasma regimes, heating conditions, and its sufficiently long discharge duration, JT-60SA enables studies on MHD stability at high β, heat/particle/momentum transport, high-energy ion physics, pedestal physics including ELM control, and divertor ...
