In magnetic confinement devices, boundary turbulence is responsible for transporting plasma and energy from the well-confined region towards the material surfaces where it can severely harm reactor relevant machines. It is therefore essential to develop a solid understanding of the mechanisms behind the transport in the edge of the plasma. Large fl…

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…
