This paper presents recent progress on the studies of neoclassical tearing modes (NTMs) on TCV, concerning the new physics learned and how this physics contributes to a better real-time (RT) control of NTMs. A simple technique that adds a small (sinusoidal) sweeping to the target electron cyclotron (EC) beam deposition location has proven effective…


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…

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…
