NRC schedules webinars on Holtec’s proposed New Mexico storage site
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled four webinars in late August and early September to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Holtec International’s proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in New Mexico. Webinars were previously held on June 23 and July 9.
As published in the August 13 Federal Register, the public comment webinars will be held on August 20 from 6–9 p.m., August 25 from 2–5 p.m., August 26 from 6–9 p.m., and September 2 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. All times are Eastern. Information for the webinars is posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage.

For understanding of the plug potential generation in a tandem mirror, the potential structure of the whole plasma should be investigated. In particular, the potential structure from the plug-barrier cell to the end plate installed on the end wall of the vacuum vessel has physical import. The fundamental ECRH at the plug region generates an electromotive force by driving the axial flow of electrons. This electromotive force is divided into the positive plug potential and the negative end plate potential. This paper shows the variations of these potential with currents flowing through each region. The end plate potential increases with this current. Analysis of a current carrying sheath is applied to the end plate potential. The plug potential decreases with a radial ion current in the peripheral region of the plug-barrier cell. To illustrate this point, a plasma shot with NBI is examined in which a trapped plasma is generated in the cell.
