DOE renews Portsmouth grant to Ohio University
The Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management has renewed a $2.5 million grant to Ohio University to support community redevelopment around the DOE’s Portsmouth Site. Since 2016, the DOE has provided a total of $8.2 million to the university for work with the communities.
The DOE grant, which began on October 1, will be administered over five years through September 30, 2027. A previous grant expired on September 30.

Neutral beam injection is recognized as one of the most effective methods for plasma heating. According to the requirements for physics experiments of the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), two beamlines for neutral beam injection were built in 2014. In order to meet the diverse requirements of magnetic confinement experiments, recent attempts have been carried out for arc power control of a neutral beam injection ion source. A test system was added to the arc power control system. It provides a new method to smoothly change arc power during a discharge. According to the experimental results of controlling arc power, the fesibility of varying the arc power was verified in the duration of discharge. Meanwhile, the test system achieves the remote setting of arc power parameters.
