|Fabrication of the 5th Gyrotron is continued
Russia gains momentum in manufacturing Gyrotrons for ITER. Being fabricated in Nizhny Novgorod by GYCOM Ltd. and the Institute of Applied Physics, Gyrotrons (Russia makes 8 out of 24) should provide 1 MW power at the required 170 GHz in continuous mode.
By now, the testing of the 4th Gyrotron set has been completed and is ready for FAT that is to take place in June, the parameters of Gyrotron satisfy ITER requirements. Manufacturing of the 5th Gyrpotron set for ITER is ongoing. First test will be carried out in September year.
