Pellet Inject (Fueling) System

The US will contribute 100% towards the pellet injection system for fueling and edge localized mode mitigation.

ITER will require significant fueling capability to operate at high density for long durations. Pellet injection provides efficient core and edge fueling and will deliver hydrogen, deuterium, or a deuterium/tritium mixture as required by plasma operations. Delivering fuel pellets to the plasma edge mitigates edge localized mode instabilities.
