Nuclear Fusion Project
- Our nuclear fusion reactor control system is a core control system supplied to ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), the first to be attempted in the world in France. The entire control system of ITER is composed of three mutually independent vertical structures; the conventional control system in charge of operation at a normal state; the interlock control system in charge of equipment protection in case of abnormal operation; and the safety control system in charge of human safety at all circumstances.
Such vertical structure is again separated into two horizontal structures of the central control system and the plant system, resulting in a total of six control systems. The central control system is directly managed by the ITER international agency, and the 170 plant systems are separately managed by each of the 7 ITER member countries.
