46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

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…

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

Recent results from MAST address key physics issues for ITER operations and the design of future devices, by advancing our understanding of through analysis of high-resolution data and numerical modelling. Modelling of the interaction between filaments with BOUT++ indicates filaments separated by more than 5x their width move independently, and …
