Physical problems in designing a tokamak fusion reactor are reviewed. INTOR-like device is considered as a reference reactor. The problems include 1) poloidal field coil configuration, 2) poloidal divertor, 3) toroidal field ripple and burn control and 4) plasma disruption. Emphases are placed on the issuesclosely related to the reactor design and R & D items to be investigated in future.
It should be useful to clarify these physical problems at present, since it will greatly help to further pursue more optimized core plasma and to set the concrete goals for the development of technology in future commercial reactors.
