The poloidal field magnet system of the KSTAR consists of three pairs of coils using the cable-in-conduit conductors cooled by forced super-critical helium. The conductor of PF5 is Nb3Sn superconductor with Incoloy 908 conduit, and that of PF6 and PF7 is NbTi superconductor with SS 316LN. The PF coils are self-supporting with regard to radial loads, and they are arranged symmetrically with respect to the equatorial plane. PF5 coil is connected to the TF coil structure at eight points by hinges, while PF6 and PF7 coils are connected at sixteen points by flexible plates to allow relative radial movements. In order to investigate the structural integrity, structural analysis has been conducted including buckling and fatigue analyses. The major design loads are dead weight, assembly loads, thermal load due to cool down, and electromagnetic loads under the critical load conditions. It is found that the PF magnet structures can safely withstand all operating conditions. In addition, AISI 316LN can be substituted for JJ1 as the material of the PF coil structures.
