It has been shown on several tokamaks that application of a Resonant Magnetic Perturbation (RMP) eld on plasma can under certain conditions lead to suppression or mitigation of Edge-Localized Mode (ELM) instabilities. Due to the rotation of the plasma in the RMP eld reference system, currents are induced on resonant surfaces within the plasma, co…

Sustained Edge Localised Mode (ELM) mitigation has been achieved on MAST and AUG using RMPs with various toroidal mode numbers over a wide range of low to medium collisionality discharges. The ELM energy loss and peak heat loads at the divertor targets have been reduced. The ELM mitigation phase is typically associated with a drop in plasma density…

The application of resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) produces splitting of the divertor strike point due to the interaction of the RMP field and the plasma field. The application of a rotating RMP field causes the strike point splitting to rotate, distributing the particle and heat flux evenly over the divertor. The RMP coils in MAST have been…
