We report results of the benchmarking of core particle transport simulations by the codes widely used in the interpretative transport analyses and predictive modelling of tokamak plasmas. Our analysis includes formulation of transport equations, difference between electron and ion particle solvers, comparison of simulations of particle sinks and so…

Advanced Tokamak Concepts [C. Kessel, J. Manickam, G. Rewoldt, and W. M. Tang, Phys. Rev. Lett. 72 , 1212 (1994)] have been designed assuming that the ‘‘Resistive Wall Mode’’ (RWM) is stable. It has recently been shown that the RWM can be stabilized by a combination of strong uniform plasma rotation and visco-resistive dissipation. In this …
