JET supports ITER both in development of technology and in torus operations. The latter include the study of ITER-like scenarios, operation in tritium (a trace tritium campaign has recently been completed), mitigation of ELMs and disruptions, investigation of tritium retention, real time control of plasma parameters, and control of extreme plasma s…

Operation of the JET Neutral Beam Injectors with tritium is described. Supplying the tritium feed via the special electrically grounded gas feed compromised the performance of the up-graded high current triode Positive Ion Neutral Injectors (PINI) due to gas starvation of the source and the methods adopted to ameliorate this effect are described. A…

‘Trace Tritium Experiments’ (TTE) were successfully performed on JET in 2003. The Campaign marked the first use of tritium in JET plasmas since the Deuterium- Tritium Experiment (DTE1) Campaign in 1997, and was the first use of tritium in experiments under the EFDA organisation with the UKAEA as JET Operator. The safety and regulatory preparati…

A cryosorption panel test arrangement was installed in the Cryogenic Forevacuum (CF) Subsystem of the Active Gas Handling System (AGHS) at JET. The pump panels were of ITER relevant design in terms of geometry and dimension, coating and sorbent material. The central objective of this investigation was to study, for the first time in such an in-dept…
