On Thursday February 16 our group member Dr. Xavier Sáez gave a talk within the PATC course “HPC-based simulations, Engineering and Environment” at Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
The mission of the PRACE Advanced Training Centers (PATC) is to carry out and coordinate training and education activities that enable the European research community to utilize the computational infrastructure available through PRACE.
Xavier’s talk focused on fusion energy. Future energy requirements set an unprecedented challenge for our society, and fusion energy is uniquely placed to meet the growing energy demand.
Different topics were addressed in his talk:
- Basic concepts about plasma and fusion physics,
- Status of ITER project,
- Description of fusion research done in the BSC fusion group and internationally,
- Examples of fusion codes used in the research, and
- Highlights from research performed in the BSC fusion group.
