Russian Scientific Research and Development Cable Institute (known by Russian abbreviation as VNIIKP) has been participating in ITER project since 1993 both at the early stage of Research and Development (R&D) and at the following stage of Engineering Design Activity (EDA). Tests of several short samples at Sultan test facility were crowned by successful testing of Toroidal Field (TF) and Poloidal Field (PF) insert coils performed in Japan in 2001 and 2008 correspondingly. Now VNIIKP is actively implementing the final production and delivery stage. By 2009 the full technological complex has been accomplished to produce PF cables for both the Russian Federation (RF) and European parts and TF conductors for RF part. In this review we present a short history of VNIIKP participation in ITER and our current achievements. The technology used and our production line are described in some detail. © 2011 IEEE.

Commercial multifilamentary NbTi strands produced by the Russian Federation Domestic Agency for the ITER poloidal field (PF) coils PF1 and PF6 were characterized regarding Jc(B, T) by magnetization and transport measurements. The results of critical current measurements at magnetic fields in the wide range from 2 to 10 T and at temperatures from 3.5 to 7.5 K are presented. The experimental results were obtained at two laboratories; the two sets of data show a good match and demonstrate the high reproducibility of data. The current sharing temperature Tcs of the strands is between 5.9 and 6 K at 6.4 T at an operating current of 33 A. These results enable finding strand characteristic parameters for Jc}(B, T) fits and lead to a database, which is essential for the future analysis of experimental data for the PF conductor performance. © 2002-2011 IEEE.
