Abstract:The new THELMA code, including a thermal-hydraulic (TH) and an electro-magnetic (EM) model of a cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC), has been developed. The TH model is at this stage relatively conventional, with two fluid components (He flowing in the annular cable region and He flowing in the central channel) being particular to the CICC of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), and two solid components (superconducting strands and jacket/conduit). In contrast, the EM model is novel and will be presented here in full detail. The results obtained from this first version of the code are compared with experimental results from pulsed tests of the ENEA stability experiment (ESE), showing good agreement between computed and measured deposited energy and subsequent temperature increase.
