28th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Nice, France, 10-15th May 2021

The pedestal plays an important role in determining the confinement in tokamak H-mode plasmas. However, the steep pressure gradients in this transport barrier also lead to edge localized modes (ELMs) [1]. There is good understanding of the pedestal in type I ELM regimes [2], however, type I ELMs are known to damage plasma facing components and futu…

46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

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 …
