It is often observed that large sawteeth trigger the neoclassical tearing mode (NTM) well below the usual threshold for this instability. At the same time, fast particles in the plasma core stabilize sawteeth and provide these large crashes. The paper presents results of first experiments in ASDEX Upgrade for destabilization of fast particle stabil…
