Deuterium pellets are injected into initially pure hydrogen H-mode plasma in order to control H:D isotope mixture. The pellets are deposited in outer 20% of minor radius, similar to that expected in ITER creating transiently hollow electron density profiles. The isotope mixture of H:D ~ 45:55% is obtained in the core with pellet fuelling throughput…

The COMPASS tokamak, a mid-sized flexible device with ITER-like shape, which can operate in H-mode, is starting its re-established operation at the Institute of Plasma Physics in Prague. A new 600 kW, 40 keV neutral beam injection (NBI) system is foreseen as a major upgrade. Reported here are predictive simulations with the ASTRA transport code, in…
