ITER-India, the Indian domestic agency for the ITER project, has the responsibility to supply a set of two high power Gyrotron sources (1 MW, 170 GHz, 3600 s) along with the auxiliary systems for Electron Cyclotron Heating & Current Drive applications. For such high power Gyrotron systems, one of the challenging areas is the system integration and establishment of reliable integrated system performance. ITER-India plans to establish the integrated Gyrotron system performance that essentially meets the ITER requirements in a Gyrotron Test Facility which is specifically being developed at ITER-India. This paper discusses about the recent updates towards the Test Facility development which includes, development of cost effective & modular Body Power Supply (BPS), Industrial grade prototype interlock & protection modules, a Gyrotron field simulator and cooling water distribution system.
