Fusion reactors with external SC (superconducting) magnet systems have the possibility of high beta-value without plasma current for plasma confinement. These reactors, however, have complex configurations and systems, which leads to reduction of these plant availabilities together with unstable maintainability. Through this research the influence on the complex system to its availability is evaluated to demonstrate the effect of using remountable systems on COE.
