A study of mixed hydrogen-deuterium H-mode plasmas has been carried out in JET-ILW to strengthen the physics basis for extrapolations to JET D-T operation and to support the development of strategies for isotope ratio control in future experiments. Variations of input power, gas fuelling and isotopic mixture were performed in H-mode plasmas of the…

Access conditions for full suppression of edge localised modes (ELMs) by magnetic perturbations (MP) in low density high confinement mode (H-mode) plasmas are studied in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The main empirical requirements for full ELM suppression in our experiments are: 1. The poloidal spectrum of the MP must be aligned for best plasma respo…

The initial current ramp phase of JET hybrid plasmas is used to optimise the target q-profile for main heating to allow access to high beta and avoid MHD instabilities. Mixed protium-deuterium experiments, carried out at JET since the installation of the beryllium-tungsten wall, have shown that the q-profile evolution during this Ohmic phase varies…

Particle transport is of a great importance for understanding physics of tokamak plasmas and planning future experiments on larger machines such as ITER. The subject was intensively studied in the past, particularly in relation to density peaking and presence of anomalous inward particle convection in L- and H-mode. While in the L-mode case presenc…

The complete refuelling of the plasma density loss (pump-out) caused by mitigation of Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) is demonstrated on the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The plasma is refuelled by injection of frozen deuterium pellets and ELMs are mitigated by external resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs). In this experiment relevant dimensionless paramete…
