The optimum conditions for access to and sustainment of H-mode plasmas and their expected plasma parameters in the Pre-Fusion Power Operation 1 (PFPO-1) phase of the ITER Research Plan, where the additional plasma heating will be provided by 20 MW of Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH), are assessed in order to identify key open R&D issues. The as…

The fusion performance of ELMy H-mode DT plasmas with q95 = 3 and \\beta_N = 1.8 (also referred to as medium-\\beta_N baseline scenario in the rest of this paper) are predicted with the JINTRAC suite of codes and the QuaLiKiZ transport model. The predictions are based on the analysis of DT plasmas from the first DT campaign on JET in 1997 (DTE1…

Parametric dependencies of the linear stability of toroidal Alfven 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. I…

We present an ultrafast neural network (NN) turbulent tokamak transport model, QLKNN, for heat and particle fluxes. QLKNN is a surrogate model based on a database of 3 · 108 flux calculations of the quasilinear gyrokinetic transport model QuaLiKiz. To ensure accurate reproduction of the underlying model, we include known features of the…

Core turbulent particle transport with multiple isotopes can display observable differences in behaviour between the electron and ion particle channels. Experimental observations at JET with mixed H-D plasmas and varying NBI and gas-puff sources [M. Maslov et al., Nucl. Fusion 7 076022 (2018)] inferred source dominated electr…

NBI-heated L-mode plasmas have been obtained in JET with the Be/W ITER-like wall (JET-ILW) in H and D, with matched profiles of the dimensionless plasma parameters in the plasma core confinement region and same Ti/Te and Zeff. The achieved isotope identity indicates that the confinement scale invariance principle is satisfied in the core confine…

The evolution of the JET high performance hybrid scenario, including central accumulation of the tungsten (W) impurity, is reproduced with predictive multi-channel integrated modelling over multiple confinement times using first-principle based models. 8 transport channels are modelled predictively, with self-consistent sources, radiation and magne…

The JET exploitation plan foresees D-T operations in 2020 (DTE2). With respect to the first D-T campaign in 1997 (DTE1), when JET was equipped with a carbon wall, the experiments will be conducted in presence of a beryllium-tungsten ITER-like wall (ILW) and will benefit from an extended and improved set of diagnostics and higher additional heating …

During the 2015-2016 JET campaigns many efforts have been devoted to the exploration of high-performance plasma scenarios envisaged for DT operation in JET. In this paper we review various key recent hybrid discharges and model the combined ICRF+NBI heating. These deuterium discharges with deuterium beams had the ICRF antenna frequency tuned to mat…
