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…

Pellets are used in ASDEX Upgrade [1] to control plasma density under conditions of ELM control or divertor detachment. In experiments presented here direct fuelling by gas is negligible. Relative pellet size and pellet deposition are aimed to approach those in ITER but differences still remain. ELMs are controlled by n=2 RMPs in feed forward mode …

An edge resonant transport layer has been found to explain many aspects of fast-ion confinement under symmetry breaking 3D edge perturbations, such as edge localized modes (ELMs) and externally applied magnetic perturbations (MPs). Experimental measurements in the ASDEX Upgrade (AUG) tokamak show that fast-ion losses in the presence of symmetry bre…
