Sustained operation of high-performance, ITER-baseline scenario plasmas at the high levels of input power (~< 40MA) required to achieve ~ 15 MW of D-T fusion power in JET-ILW requires careful optimisation of the fuelling to avoid an unacceptable disruption rate due to excessive radiation, primarily from W impurities, which are sputter…Preprint

This paper outlines an approach towards improved rigour in tokamak turbulence transport model validation within integrated modelling. Gaussian process regression (GPR) techniques were applied for profile fitting during the preparation of integrated modelling simulations. This allows for rigourous sensitivity tests of prescribed initial and bound…Preprint Published
This paper will discuss simulations of the full ionization process (i.e. plasma burn-through), fundamental to creating high temperature plasma. By means of an applied electric field, the gas is partially ionized by the electron avalanche process. In order for the electron temperature to increase, the remaining neutrals need to be fully ionized in t…Published
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…Published
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…Published
