The fast-ion transport has been investigated in low-collisionality discharges at ASDEX Upgrade and TCV using offaxis neutral beams. In both devices Alfven eigenmode activity was observed which does, however, not strongly affect the global fast-ion confinement. In contrast, charge exchange losses have been identified to have a strong effect. At TCV …

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

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…
