After the first high power D-T experiment in JET in 1997 (DTE1), when JET was equipped with Carbon PFC’s, a proposed second high power (up to ~40MW) D-T campaign (DTE2) in the current Be/W vessel will address essential operational, technical, diagnostics and scientific issues in support of ITER. These experiments are proposed to minimize the risk…

The pedestal profile measurements in high triangularity JET plasmas show that with low fuelling the pedestal width decreases during the ELM cycle and with high fuelling it stays constant. In the low fuelling case the pedestal pressure gradient keeps increasing until the ELM crash and in the high fuelling case it initially increases then saturates d…

This paper presents the DYON simulations of the plasma burn-through phase at Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall. The main purpose of the study is to validate the simulations with the ITER-like wall, made of beryllium. Without impurities, the burn-through process of a pure deuterium plasma is described using DYON simulations, and the…

Plasma Surface Interaction(PSI) effects on plasma burn-through are compared for the carbon wall and the ITER-Like Wall(ILW) at JET. For the carbon wall, the radiation barrier and C2+ influx have a significant linear correlation whereas the radiation barrier in the ILW does not have such a linear correlation with Be1+ influx. The JET data are explai…

Active control of the resistive wall mode RWM for DIII-D [Luxon and Davis, Fusion Technol. 8 , 441 (1985)] plasmas is studied using the MARS-F code [Y. Q. Liu, and et al. , Phys. Plasmas 7 , 3681 (2000)]. Control optimization shows that the mode can be stabilized up to the ideal wall beta limit, using the internal control coils I-coils and poloidal…

JET has operated with divertors of differing geometries since 1994. Impurities accumulated in the inner leg of all the divertors, and operation of the first (Mk I) divertor with beryllium tiles demonstrated that most are eroded from the main chamber walls and swept along the scrape-off layer to the inner divertor. Carbon deposited at the inner dive…
