Sustained operation of high-performance, ITER-baseline scenario plasmas at the high levels of input power (~< 40MA) required to achieve ~ 15 MW of D-T fusion power in JET-ILW requires careful optimisation of the fuelling to avoid an unacceptable disruption rate due to excessive radiation, primarily from W impurities, which are sputter…

Local linear gyrokinetic simulations show that electron temperature gradient (ETG) instabilities are the fastest growing modes for kyρi >~ 0.1 in the steep gradient region for a JET pedestal discharge (92174) where the electron temperature gradient is steeper than the ion temperature gradient. Here, ky is the wa…

The exhaust (loss) power components due to ELMs, radiation and heat transport across the edge transport barrier (ETB) between ELMs are quantifed for H-mode plasmas in JET-C and JET-ILW to provide data for comparison with simulations of pedestal heat transport. In low-current, JET-ILW pulses with a low rate of gas fuelling, the pedestal heat tran…

Magnetised plasma turbulence can have a multiscale character: instabilities driven by mean temperature gradients drive turbulence at the disparate scales of the ion and the electron gyroradii. Simulations of multiscale turbulence, using equations valid in the limit of infinite scale separation, reveal novel cross-scale interaction mechanisms in …

Spherical Tokamaks (STs) could provide a route towards a compact fusion reactor due to advantageous properties such as high plasma beta. A GW-scale ST plasma is explored where Q=10 and R=2.5m. In this design 110 MW of NBI is needed to provide 9 MA of noninductive current, where the remaining 12 MA is pressure driven. To penetrate into the core a 1 …

In high-performance, ITER baseline-scenario pulses (3MA/2.7T) in JET-ILW with high levels (~ 32 MW) of heating power, typically ~ 20-40% of the input power is radiated, predominantly by W impurities, which are sputtered from the divertor targets and reach the confined plasma. Sustained ELMy H-mode operation at such high heating power in JET-ILW req…

The JET exploitation plan foresees D-T operations in 2020 (DTE2). With respect to the first D-T campaign in 1997 (DTE1), when JET was equipped with a carbon wall, the experiments will be conducted in presence of a beryllium-tungsten ITER-like wall (ILW) and will benefit from an extended and improved set of diagnostics and higher additional heating …

Multiple space and time scales arise in plasma turbulence in magnetic confinement fusion devices because of the smallness of the square root of the electron-to-ion mass ratio and the consequent disparity of the ion and electron thermal gyroradii and thermal speeds. Direct simulations of this turbulence that include both ion and electron space-ti…

Starting from expressions in Connor et al. (1988), we derive a one-dimensional tearing equation similar to the approximate equation obtained by Hegna & Callen (1994); Nishimura et al. (1998), but for more realistic toroidal equilibria. The intention is to use this approximation to explore the role of steep H-mode pedestals, bootstrap currents a…

In this work, using solutions from a local gyrokinetic flux-tube code combined with higher order ballooning theory, a new analytical approach is developed to reconstruct the global linear mode structure with associated global mode frequency. In addition to the isolated mode (IM), which usually peaks on the outboard mid-plane, the higher order ballo…
