27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

Unraveling the conditions that permit access to H-mode continues to be an unresolved physics issue for tokamaks, and accurate extrapolations are important for planning ITER operations and DEMO design constraints. Experiments have been performed in JET, with the ITER-like W/Be wall, to increase the confidence of predictions for the L-H transition po…

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

An n = 1 locked, or slowly rotating, mode has been observed in most pulses prior to JET disruptions. However, a small fraction of non-disruptive pulses has a locked mode which eventually vanishes without disruption. Hence, on JET the locked mode amplitude is routinely used as an indicator of unhealthy plasma. There are two threshold levels…
