The fast-ion transport has been investigated in low-collisionality discharges at ASDEX Upgrade and TCV using offaxis neutral beams. In both devices Alfven eigenmode activity was observed which does, however, not strongly affect the global fast-ion confinement. In contrast, charge exchange losses have been identified to have a strong effect. At TCV …

Dimensionless identity experiments test the invariance of plasma physics to changes in the dimensional plasma parameters, e.g. ne and Te, when the dimensionless parameters are conserved [1] [2]. However, conditions at the plasma boundary, such as influx of neutral particles, may introduce additional physics. An isotope iden…

As part of the preparation for the second JET DT campaign (DTE2), a series of isotope control experiments in H/D mixtures [1] have shown that NBI fuelling species has only a weak effect on the core isotope composition, which remains determined by the edge H/D ratio and therefore by the injected gas.

The initial Ohmic current ramp phase of JET hybrid plasmas, including a current ‘overshoot’ before the main heating, is used to optimise the q-profile shape to allow access to high β and avoid MHD instabilities [1]. Such hybrid plasmas have never been operated using tritium (T) or mixed deuterium-tritium (D-T) fuel. However, experiments with i…

The dependence of JET neutron deficit and energy balance on neutral beam (PINI) selection has been investigated experimentally. The discrepancy between neutrons predicted and measured during JET pulses has consistently deviated, with the measured neutrons typically being lower than expected by simulation. A number of investigations into this hav…
