Abstract:

As a key part of the diagnosis system in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), the neutron flux monitor (NFM), which measures the neutron intensity of the fusion reaction, is a Counting-Campbelling system with a large dynamic counting range. A dynamic linear calibration method is proposed in this paper to solve the problem of cross-over between the different counting and Campbelling channels, and improve the accuracy of the cross-calibration for long-term operation. The experimental results show that the NFM system with the dynamic linear calibration system can obtain the neutron flux of the fusion reactor in real time and realize the seamless measurement area connection between the two channels.
