47th EPS Plasma Physics Virtual Conference, 21-25 June 2021

The disruption mitigation system at ITER will include four shattered pellet injectors (SPI), which will be dedicated to the mitigation of electro-magnetic loads (EML), thermal loads and the avoidance and suppression of runaway electrons. Recently the JETILW was equipped with an SPI with a wide capability. Specifically: pellet diameter d = [4.57, 8.…

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…

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…

In high-performance, ITER baseline-scenario pulses (3MA/2.7T) in JET-ILW with high levels (~ 32 MW) of heating power, typically ~ 20-40% of the input power is radiated, predominantly by W impurities, which are sputtered from the divertor targets and reach the confined plasma. Sustained ELMy H-mode operation at such high heating power in JET-ILW req…

The JET Real-Time Protection Sequencer (RTPS) co-ordinates responses for magnetic and kinetic actuators to protect the ITER-Like Wall from possible melting events and other undesirable scenarios. It allows programmable stop responses per pulse, based on alarms raised by other systems. The architecture combines a modular run-time application deve…
