30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

The Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) is currently being extensively upgraded to provide a system that will be able to add to the knowledge base for ITER as well as testing innovative reactor systems such as the Super-X divertor. MAST-U will have increased coil system and power supply capability. Therefore, to ensure operation of MAST-U within s…

Understanding the impact of the synergistic effects on fast ion distribution function (DF) is essential for maximising the fusion rates in magnetic confinement fusion plasma. Because fusion reactions such as D-D, D-3He, D-T etc. have different energy dependencies, tailoring the energies of the fast ions to predetermined values optimal for fusion…

As part of the preparation for the second JET DT campaign (DTE2), a series of isotope control experiments in H/D mixtures [1] have shown that NBI fuelling species has only a weak effect on the core isotope composition, which remains determined by the edge H/D ratio and therefore by the injected gas.
