The Procurement of the feeder system for The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) tokamak device started in ASIPP (China) in 2006. The relevant tasks of structural design and analysis have now come to an end, but the R&D activities started in 2009 for critical feeder components and key technology are still ongoing. Following the signature of the Procurement Arrangement between China and the ITER Organization (IO) in 2010, a great number of R&D tasks have been launched with the purpose of testing and verifying the original design, leading to design changes and optimizations. This paper mainly discusses the progress of the feeder design and R&D activities; it also presents some test results.
