This paper presents results of extensive analysis of mode excitation observed during the operation of the Alfvén Eigenmode Active Diagnostic (AEAD) in the JET tokamak during the 2019-2020 deuterium campaign. Six of eight toroidally-spaced antennas, each with independent power and phasing, were successful in actively exciting stable MHD modes in 47…

The Gyrokinetic Toroidal Code (GTC) has been used to study Toroidal Alfven Eigenmodes (TAEs) in high-
performance plasmas. Experiments performed at the Joint European Torus, where TAEs were driven by
energetic particles arising from Neutral Beams, ion cyclotron resonant heating and resonantly excited by
ded…

The Gyrokinetic Toroidal Code (GTC) has been used to study Toroidal Alfvén Eigenmodes (TAEs) in high-performance plasmas. Experiments performed at the Joint European Torus, where TAEs were driven by energetic particles arising from Neutral Beams, ion cyclotron resonant heating and resonantly excited by dedicated external antennas, have been simula…

A nonlinear bump-on-tail model for the growth and saturation of energetic particle driven plasma waves has been extended to include two populations of fast particles - one dominated by dynamical friction at the resonance and the other by velocity space diffusion. The resulting temporal evolution of the wave amplitude and frequency depends on the re…

Alfven eigenmodes (AEs) are studied to assess their stability in high density reactor relevant regimes. Stable AEs are excited with active magnetohydrodynamics antennas in the range of the expected AE frequency. Toroidal Alfven eigenmode (TAE) damping rates have been observed in diverted and limited Ohmic plasmas. Energetic particle modes or TAEs h…
