Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) in H-mode tokamak plasmas may be controlled or entirely suppressed by applying 3D magnetic perturbations (MPs). The applied perturbation is amplified by the plasma response, and it has previously been established that the size of the peeling component of this response is a reliable indicator for expected ELM control on A…

Systems codes are used in the conceptual phases of fusion reactors design. They employ a multitude of simplified models to simulate an entire power plant and ensure that designs are self-consistent, viable and optimised with respect to a given figure of merit. Their strength is the fast determination of an overall design. However, their output shou…

During ELM crashes in deuterium plasmas in the KSTAR tokamak, the emitted electromagnetic radiation includes features with sharp spectral structure in the frequency range up to ~900MHz. Cases where the spectral peaks below ~500MHz correspond to proton cyclotron harmonics at the outer midplane edge are explained (B Chapman et al., Nucl.…

45th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Prague, 2-6 July 2018

Empirically-based power-balance calculations of the inter-ELM separatrix loss power are presented for JET pulses with both the carbon- (JET-C) and ITER-like (JET-ILW) walls, to facilitate comparisons with results of on-going, non-linear gyro-kinetic calculations of pedestal heat transport, e.g. as reported in [1]. These might be able to explain the…

Ion cyclotron emission (ICE) is a commonly observed feature of magnetized toroidal plasmas in the presence of fast ions. It is generally agreed that this emission is caused by a strongly inverted (in the velocity space) population of confined fast ions originating from either neutral beam injection (NBI), fusion reactions, or acceleration by waves …

2nd International Conference on Nuclear Power Plants: Structures, Risk and Decommissioning (NUPP), Croydon, UK, 11-12 June 2018

There is currently a European collaboration that is working towards developing a Demonstration Fusion Reactor (European DEMO). This project is currently defining the high level plant architecture of a DEMO reactor, whilst developing conceptual design solutions for technically challenging systems. One such area of development is the design of Pla…

22nd Topical Conference on High Temperature Plasma Diagnostics (HTPD), San Diego, USA, 16-19 April 2018

Charge-exchange spectroscopy on JET has become particularly challenging with the introduction of the ITER-like wall. The impurity spectra are weaker and contaminated by many tungsten lines. We have therefore upgraded the instrumentation to allow the simultaneous measurement of impurity and fuel-ion charge exchange by splitting the light between two…

Nuclear fusion, the process by which the Sun generates energy, is proposed as one solution to secure the future of global energy supply. If successful it will provide an unlimited source of clean energy. Probably the most promising approach to harnessing fusion for energy production is that of the Tokamak device, a magnetic confinement device of to…
