Remote Handling (RH) is an absolute required feature of ITER not only during nominal operation, but also during rescue and recovery situations. Among the various RH systems and sub-systems, a Cask and Plug Remote handling Systems (CPRHS) including a mobile robot (CTS-Cask Transfer System) has been adopted as the reference solution for the transportation of casks (containing divertors and blankets) to/from vacuum vessel ports in all levels of the Tokamak Building (TB) and ports in the Hot Cell Building (HCB).
Following the work developed in a previous grant, the main objectives of the present grant addressed the issues of designing and analyzing the optimal paths and trajectories for all the ITER transportation tasks allocated to the CPRHS, in particular:
