The pedestal plays an important role in determining the confinement in tokamak H-mode plasmas. However, the steep pressure gradients in this transport barrier also lead to edge localized modes (ELMs) [1]. There is good understanding of the pedestal in type I ELM regimes [2], however, type I ELMs are known to damage plasma facing components and futu…

In the present work, global, three-dimensional edge plasma turbulence simulations of a MAST L-mode attached plasma discharge are presented. Our study is based on the drift-reduced Braginskii equations, solved with the STORM module of BOUT++ for realistic MAST parameters in disconnected lower double null configuration. The plasma profiles are evolve…
