EDFA, as part of the Power Plant Physics and Technology programme, has been working on the pre-conceptual design of a Demonstration Power Plant (DEMO). As part of this programme, a review of the remote maintenance strategy considered maintenance solutions compatible with expected environmental conditions, whilst showing potential for meeting the pl…Published

Studies establishing key phenomena and developing diagnostics for energetic particle physics, which are essential for the next step burning plasma experiments such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), have been performed at the Joint European Torus (JET). Experiments have demonstrated clear selfheating of deuterium-tritiu…Published

Type-I edge-localized modes (ELMs) have been mitigated at the JET tokamak using a static external n 1 perturbation field generated by four error field correction coils located far from the plasma. During the application of the n 1 field the ELM frequency increased by a factor of 4 and the amplitude of the D signal decreased. The energy loss per ELM…Published
The plasma position and shape on the COMPASS-D tokamak have been controlled simultaneously with a 75- kHz bandwidth, hard-wired, real-time neural network. The primary network operates with up to 48 selected magnetic inputs and has been used in the vertical position control loop to control the position of the upper edge of the plasma at the radius o…Published
