Development and validation of numerical tools for Tritium Extraction Systems based on the Permeator Against Vacuum Technique for the next fusion machines

Thesis type RESEARCH, INNOVATIVE
Description The next generation of fusion machines will use a breeding blanket (BB) to produce the Tritium fuel, which needs to be extracted from the breeder. A mock-up of a tritium-extraction system from the PbLi, based on the Permeator-Against-Vacuum Technique is under installation at the ENEA, Brasimone premises. After the mock-up tests, a huge amount of experimental data will be available for the validation and if needed, further development of the numerical models capable to describe the physical behaviour of the system , with special attention to the aspects related to the heat transfer and hydrogen-isotopes diffusion.
