Abstract
The superconducting magnet system of the stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) consists of 50 non-planar and 20 planar coils grouped in five periodic modules. Ten coils of a given type of non-planar and planar coils will always be connected electrically in series with nominal currents ranging up to 18 kA. Because of the 5-fold symmetry five busbar systems are to be routed. Electrical connection of the busbar system will require 184 disconnectable joints with a resistance below 5 nΩ. The paper describes the design features of the busbar systems and their installation in the stellarator. Requirements for the design and qualification of the disconnectable joints will be pointed out.
