Fusion power plants constitute a possible future energy source. The goal of this bachelor/master project is to numerically model a tokamak fusion power plant and estimate its main parameters.

The goal of this bachelor/master project is to further develop our modular code to numerically model a tokamak fusion power plant. The power plant model is used to study physics and engineering of tokamaks and to make predictions of the main parameters of a fusion power plant usable for cost estimates. We also use it as learning tool in the class 10401 Fusion Energy and Fusion Plasma Physics at DTU. It is therefore essential that the code is well-written in a modular way and is well-documented. This is the a project framed in a long-term project to develop the model tokamak fusion power plant Danish Torus Undertaking. Several code extensions are of interest, for example accounting for D-shape of plasma or modeling auxiliary heating and current drive systems.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
