What is ITER?

ITER is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject aimed at replicating the fusion processes of the sun to create energy on earth. The project was originally named I nternational T hermonuclear E xperimental R eactor, but it has been renamed to Iter, a Latin word meaning the way or the path.

What is the abbreviation for iterator?

For the computer science terminology, see Iterator. / 43.70831; 5.77741 ITER (initially the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, iter meaning the way or the path in Latin) is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject aimed at replicating the fusion processes of the Sun to create energy on the Earth.

What is ITER and what is its successor?

ITERs planned successor, the EUROfusion -led DEMO, is expected to be one of the first fusion reactors to produce electricity in an experimental environment. ITER will produce energy by fusing deuterium and tritium to helium.

What is the energy output of ITER?

ITER is designed to produce a ten-fold return on energy (Q=10), or 500 MW of fusion power from 50 MW of input heating power. ITER will not capture the energy it produces as electricity, but—as first of all fusion experiments in history to produce net energy gain—it will prepare the way for the machine that can.

What is ITER and how does it work?

Fusion, the nuclear reaction that powers the Sun and the stars, is a potential source of safe, non-carbon emitting and virtually limitless energy. Harnessing fusions power is the goal of ITER, which has been designed as the key experimental step between todays fusion research machines and tomorrows fusion power plants.

What is the history of ITER?

The initial international cooperation for a nuclear fusion project that was the foundation of ITER began in 1979 with the International Tokamak Reactor, or INTOR, which had four partners: the Soviet Union, the European Atomic Energy Community, the United States, and Japan.

What is the ITER reactor?

As a research reactor, the heat energy generated will not be converted to electricity, but simply vented. ITER is funded and run by seven member parties: China, the European Union, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United States.

What is ITERs planned successor?

ITERs planned successor, DEMO, is expected to be the first fusion reactor to produce electricity in an experimental environment. DEMOs anticipated success is expected to lead to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power stations and future commercial reactors.

Who are the members of ITER?

The Parties to the ITER Agreement (the ITER Members) are the Peoples Republic of China; the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom); the Republic of India; Japan; the Republic of Korea; the Russian Federation; and the United States of America.

What are the precursors to ITER?

Precursors to ITER were EAST, SST-1, KSTAR, JET, and Tore Supra. Other planned and proposed fusion reactors include SPARC, DEMO, NIF, HiPER, MAST, SST-2, CFETR ( China Fusion Engineering Test Reactor ), T-15MD and other DEMO-phase national or private-sector fusion power plants. ^ ITER Technical Basis.
