Access conditions for full suppression of edge localised modes (ELMs) by magnetic perturbations (MP) in low density high confinement mode (H-mode) plasmas are studied in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The main empirical requirements for full ELM suppression in our experiments are: 1. The poloidal spectrum of the MP must be aligned for best plasma respo…

The impact of the three-dimensional (3D) tokamak geometry from external magnetic perturbations (MPs) on the local edge stability has been examined in high confinement mode (H-mode) plasmas with edge localised modes (ELMs) in ASDEX Upgrade. The 3D geometry has been probed using rigidly rotating MP fields. The measured distortions of the plasma bound…

The complete refuelling of the plasma density loss (pump-out) caused by mitigation of Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) is demonstrated on the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The plasma is refuelled by injection of frozen deuterium pellets and ELMs are mitigated by external resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs). In this experiment relevant dimensionless paramete…
