Charge The charge to the review committee is:

1) Are the requirements defined? What is the proposed design?

2) Is the analysis consistent with the proposed design?

3) Are fabrication documents (drawings, specifications) complete?

4) Are there satisfactory fabrication plans?

5) Have prior design review chits been addressed?

6) Have all technical, cost/schedule, and safety risks been addressed?

Summary of Results

The design of the NCSX PF4, PF5 and PF6 coils was reviewed on 2/20/08.  Detailed aspects of the proposed coil construction were presented including all physical dimensions, and specifications for epoxy, insulating materials, and conductors (common to all three coils).  The expected mechanical and electrical performance of the completed coils was reviewed, and a summary of analysis and testing needed to develop a good fabrication plan was available.  Drawings for all three coils have been completed and were available for this review, but questions on several design details remained unanswered. Chit were generated and the review committee decided to reconvene after the final approval of the System Requirements Document, and the posted availability of documented (and reviewed) support analysis.

The review committee again met on 3/4/08 to review the chits from the FDR in the light of the now finalized System Requirement Document. The committee concurred that the designed package for the PF coils is ready to go out for procurement/fabrication.  It was recognized, however, that interfacing systems have not reached final design, and the majority of the chits written during this review are concerned with details of these interfaces.
