C-2U Field-Reversed Configuration (FRC) experiment proved substantial reduction in turbulence-driven losses via tangential neutral beam injection (NBI) coupled with electrically biased plasma guns at the plasma ends.[1, 2] Highly reproducible FRCs with a significant fast-ion population  and total plasma temperature of ~ 1 keV were produced and sustained for times significantly longer (more than 5 ms) than all characteristic plasma decay times without beams. 
Last year, the C-2U experimental device underwent a major upgrade in order to to further improve the FRC sustainment and demonstrate the FRC ramp-up. The new C-2W machine is equipped with a new NBI system producing a record total hydrogen beam power of 13+ MW in a 30 ms pulse. The NBI system consists of eight positive-ion based injectors featuring flexible, modular design based on a triode ion optical system with slitted multi-aperture inertially cooled grids and ballistic beam focusing. The cold-cathode arc discharge plasma sources  generate up to 180 Amps of extracted ion current.
This presentation provides an overview of the C-2W NBI system, including the design of the injectors, layout of the power supply system, and first experimental results.
