General Methodology of Safety Analysis/Evaluation for Fusion Energy Systems (GEMSAFE) and Its Applications

  • Yoichi Fujii-e

Abstract

Deutrium-tritium fusion reactions must have a potential to realize an attractive energy system in near future. From the result of the conceptual designs and the relevant engineering studies, the safety characteristics of a fusion energy system have been made fairly clear. Namely, in a fusion energy system, we have to handle successfully many kinds of energy sources and a large amount of radioactive materials, so that we should recognize it as having large potential hazards. In the process of introduction and deployment of the fusion system to the human society, therefore, it is desirable to demonstrate the societal acceptability from the early stage of the system development.
