Abstract: During plasma disruption events in Tokamaks, a large amount of magnetic energy is associated to the transfer of plasma current into eddy currents in the passive structures. In the ITER programme two design concepts have been proposed. One approach (ITER CDA design) is based on copper stabilization loops (i.e. twin loops) attached to box-shaped blanket segments, electrically and mechanically separated along the + toroidal direction. For another design concept (lTER EDA design) based on lower plasma elongation there is no need for specific stabilization loops. The passive stabilization is obtained by toroidaly continuous components (i.e. the plasma facing wall of the blank segments allows a continually along the toroidal direction).
