A method to quantify the energy transfer among turbulent structures using singular value decomposition (SVD) is presented. We apply the method to numerical turbulence data obtained from a global plasma simulation using the Hasegawa-Wakatani fluid model, in which the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability plays a dominant role. Using the SVD method, the e…

If correct, the Lengyel Model offers a simple and powerful tool to predict detachment onset in future fusion reactors. We assess its validity against a comprehensive SOLPS-4.3 simulation database of ITER baseline (Q=10) neon-seeded plasmas (Pacher etal 2015 {it J. Nucl. Mater.} {bf 463} 591). In absolute terms, the Lengyel Model is found to overpre…

Dedicated experiments to generate high-energy D ions and D-3He fusion-born alpha particles have been performed at the Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall (ILW). Deuterium ions from neutral beam injection (NBI) with acceleration voltage of 100 keV were accelerated to higher energies in the core of mixed D-3He pl…

A high performing DEMO divertor target mock-up design that uses the thermal break interlayer concept is presented.  The design evolved from a previous design of which six mock-ups were designed, fabricated and subjected to high heat flux testing.  The new design was generated using optimisation techniques; specifically, software was developed to …

The atmosphere in powder-based additive manufacturing influences the level of impurities inside the build volume as well as the phases formed during cooldown. We use a thermodynamic model to investigate trends for steels commonly considered for fusion reactors and power plants, namely 316L, F91, F92 and Eurofer97. The atmospheres considered are vac…

Materials data are an essential aspect of any engineering design and simulation effort. Here we describe a method to capture and log materials data in a human- and machine-readable framework, based on the JSON format.

Parametric dependencies of the linear stability of toroidal Alfv´en eigenmode (TAE) in the presence of neutral beam injection (NBI) are investigated to understand the beam drive and damping effect of TAEs in JET and KSTAR. It is found that the results depend on the drift orbit width of the beam-ions normalized to the characteristic mode widths.…

With a lack of plasma disruptions and current-driven instabilities, stellarators are potentially an attractive option for a fusion power plant. Previous system studies have been performed to optimise a HELIAS (HELIcal-axis Advanced Stellarator) 5-B power plant using PROCESS, however these have been based around a single design point. In…
