Operations and Maintenance /

The use of large, functional mockups as a means to develop fusion reactor remote maintenance technology was examined. Critical remote maintenance requirements were categorized and one example, the removal and replacement of a torus sector, was used to illustrate the use of mockups. A generic mockup system was developed and the engineering issues which could be addressed were listed. Consideration was given to techniques involved in designing and using functional mockups for this purpose.
