UKAEA-CCFE-CP(20)101
46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Disruption prediction and avoidance is critical in ITER and reactor-scale tokamaks to maintain steady plasma operation and to avoid damage to device components. The present status and results from the physics-based disruption event characterization and forecasting (DECAF) research effort are shown for multiple tokam…

UKAEA-CCFE-CP(20)100
46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Disruption prediction and avoidance is necessary in future MAST-U spherical tokamak discharges to enable long-pulse plasma operation. Research examining the stability of plasmas in the MAST database utilizing proposed high quality kinetic equilibrium reconstructions and calculations with various codes, including the Disruption Event Characterizatio…
