"PPTG", Ltd. delivered first lot of electrical equipment for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER)

The first lot of lead resistors manufactured by "PPTG", Ltd. for the large-scale international project ITER was shipped on 28 October 2020.
The resistors will be used in the ITER power supply system of superconducting magnetic coils. This equipment is designed for protective grounding and ground referencing of superconducting magnetic coil potentials, ensuring voltage rectification between leads of superconducting magnetic coils and the ground in the steady and emergency operation modes as well as for recording ground fault by means of detectingleakage current in the ground circuit.

The ITER project is being implemented based on the international agreement between China, the EU, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia and the USA. The reactor is based on the tokamak installation developed by Soviet scientists which is considered to be an advanced device for performing controlled fusion. The power installation is being builtnext to the Cadarache research centre.
The ITER scale may be compared with the projects like the International Space Station and the Large Hadron Collider.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate that fusion energy may be used commercially. The Russian side has been given the order to manufacture and deliver 25 high-tech systems for the future installation. On 28 July 2020 the stage of the reactor equipment assembly and erection started, the construction is going to be completed by 2025.
