Starting from expressions in Connor et al. (1988), we derive a one-dimensional tearing equation similar to the approximate equation obtained by Hegna & Callen (1994); Nishimura et al. (1998), but for more realistic toroidal equilibria. The intention is to use this approximation to explore the role of steep H-mode pedestals, bootstrap currents a…

The replacement of the JET carbon wall (C-wall) by a Be/W ITER-like wall (ILW) has affected the plasma energy confinement. To investigate this, experiments have been performed with both the C-wall and ILW to vary the heating power over a wide range for plasmas with different shapes. It was found that the power degradation of thermal energy confinem…

A discrepancy in the divertor radiated powers between EDGE2D-EIRENE simulations, both with and without drifts, and JET-ILW experiments employing a set of NBI-heated L-mode discharges with step-wise density variation is investigated. Results from a VUV/visible poloidally scanning spectrometer are used together with bolometric measurements to determi…
