Finalizing a Procurement Arrangement (PA) signature and, at the same time, organizing Preliminary Design Reviews (PDRs) for two major systems is a very demanding task that the Chinese Domestic Agency and ITER Electrical Engineering Division performed between April and July 2012.

Assembling the documentation for the Procurement Arrangement for the Pulsed Power Electrical Network (PPEN) worth 21.9 kIUA, was finalized between January and June 2012, resulting the the PA signature at the last ITER Council in Washington D.C.

During that same period, the Preliminary Design Reviews for two other major power supply Procurement Arrangements had to be organized; these took place last week in Beijing for the Poloidal Field AC/DC Power Converters worth 61.1 kIUA and the for Reactive Power Compensators & Harmonic Filtering System worth 16.5 kIUA.

It should be noted that for the Chinese Domestic Agency these three PAs together exceed 35 percent of its total in-kind contribution to ITER.
