The experimental validation of turbulence models is a critical part of developing a predictive understanding of plasma transport. Models based on the non-linear gyrokinetic equations are currently the most well understood and experimentally validated models of turbulence available. However, models of reduced complexity are required in order to mak…

Systems codes are used in the conceptual phases of fusion reactors design. They employ a multitude of simplified models to simulate an entire power plant and ensure that designs are self-consistent, viable and optimised with respect to a given figure of merit. Their strength is the fast determination of an overall design. However, their output shou…
