The fusion performance of ELMy H-mode DT plasmas with q95 = 3 and \\beta_N = 1.8 (also referred to as medium-\\beta_N baseline scenario in the rest of this paper) are predicted with the JINTRAC suite of codes and the QuaLiKiZ transport model. The predictions are based on the analysis of DT plasmas from the first DT campaign on JET in 1997 (DTE1…

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…

The work reported in this paper has already been presented internally by placement student Jacob Young at a MAST Physics and Technology meeting on December 17 2020. Therefore it does not require a paper review presentation. Please also note that the paper is proposed for inclusion in a special issue of Plasma Research Express linked to the recent I…

The optimum conditions for access to and sustainment of H-mode plasmas and their expected plasma parameters in the Pre-Fusion Power Operation 1 (PFPO-1) phase of the ITER Research Plan, where the additional plasma heating will be provided by 20 MW of Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH), are assessed in order to identify key open R&D issues. The as…

The optimum conditions for access and sustainment of H-mode plasmas and their expected plasma parameters in the Pre-Fusion Operation 1 (PFPO-1) phase of the ITER Research Plan, where the additional plasma heating will be provided by 20 MW of Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH), are assessed. The assessment is performed on the basis of empirical and ph…

Achieving high neutron yields in today’s fusion research relies on high power auxiliary heating in order to attain required core temperatures. This is usually achieved by means of high Neutral Beam (NB) and Radio Frequency (RF) power. Application of NB power is accompanied by production of fast beam ions and associated Beam-Target (BT) reactio…

The self-consistent core-pedestal prediction model of a combination of EPED1 type pedestal prediction and a simple stiff core transport model is able to predict type I ELMy pedestals of a large database JET-ILW (ITER-like wall) at the similar accuracy as is obtained when the experimental global plasma b is used as input. The neutral penetration …

To ensure optimal plasma performance at high Qfus for the baseline scenario foreseen for the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER), fuelling requirements, in particular for non-stationary phases, need to be assessed by means of integrated modelling due to different expected fuelling behaviour and additional challenges that need to be ad…

A study of mixed hydrogen-deuterium H-mode plasmas has been carried out in JET-ILW to strengthen the physics basis for extrapolations to JET D-T operation and to support the development of strategies for isotope ratio control in future experiments. Variations of input power, gas fuelling and isotopic mixture were performed in H-mode plasmas of the…

The evolution of the JET high performance hybrid scenario, including central accumulation of the tungsten (W) impurity, is reproduced with predictive multi-channel integrated modelling over multiple confinement times using first-principle based models. 8 transport channels are modelled predictively, with self-consistent sources, radiation and magne…
