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.…

Plasma Event TRiggering for Alarms (PETRA) is a flexible new system at JET for detecting plasma events to trigger exception handling responses. It provides a platform for all existing and new techniques which involve processing JET real-time data to identify when to change the trajectory of a plasma shot, and reduces the technical cost and risk in …

The presence of Error Fields (EFs) in magnetic fusion devices can affect energy confinement and plasma stability by braking plasma rotation, by inducing fast particle losses and being amplified when exploring high-b regimes. The resulting EF Locked Modes (LMs) can be stabilized by NBI injection through the rotation shielding mechanism. However, …

The resonant detection and measurement of the damping rates of Alfvén Eigenmodes (AEs) is of critical importance to the design of experiments and development of models of AE stability [1]. With the Alfvén Eigenmodes Active Diagnostic (AEAD) on JET, weakly-damped Toroidal AEs (TAEs) have been probed. Theoretical modeling using the Gyrokinetic Toro…

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…
