Since 2015, within the scope of the Jules Horowitz Reactor (JHR) project a collaborative effort between CCFE in the UK and CEA in France has sought to develop test devices for the JHR suitable for the needs of fusion researchers. It is hoped that in having optimized experimental devices designed will facilitate use of the JHR by the fusion communit…

Arcs are the potentially most dangerous events related to Lower Hybrid (LH) antenna operation. If left uncontrolled they can produce damage and cause plasma disruption by impurity influx. To address this issue an arc real time control and protection imaging system for the Joint European Torus (JET) LH antenna has been implemented. The LH system is …

JET supports ITER both in development of technology and in torus operations. The latter include the study of ITER-like scenarios, operation in tritium (a trace tritium campaign has recently been completed), mitigation of ELMs and disruptions, investigation of tritium retention, real time control of plasma parameters, and control of extreme plasma s…

A full orbit code is used to compute collisionless losses of fusion particles from three proposed burning plasma tokamaks: the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor ITER; a spherical tokamak power plant (STPP) [T. C. Hender, A. Bond, J. Edwards, P. J. Karditsas, K. G. McClements, J. Mustoe, D. V. Sherwood, G. M. Voss, and H. R. Wilson, Fusion …

Both neoclassical theory and certain turbulence theories of particle transport in tokamaks predict the existence of bootstrap (i.e., pressure-driven) currents. Two new applications of this form of noninductive current are considered in this work. In the first, an earlier model of the nonlinearly saturated m= 1 tearing mode is extended to include th…
