Compact Stellarator Integrated Systems Assessment

Systems Code Analysis - Jim talked about his difficulty in obtaining a solution for the 7.75m case. The code wants to optimize on the 7.5 m case. He tried several approaches to have the code to re-optimize on the desired value of 7.75 m case. Rene suggested lowering the allowable NWL and Jim said he would try to do that. If successful, he will issue a new case on Friday.

Engineering and Physics Assessment

The remainder of the call discussed some action items that were being worked. Several actions were dependent on the final major radius to be adopted. Until that is decided, many of the analysis and design efforts are on hold.

Attached is the action item list provided and reviewed by the team. Les Waganer added the item discussed in the call.
