Advance tokamak scenarios are gaining more and more importance in operating tokamaks. These scenarios pose challenging control problems, since they require the simultaneous achievement of ambitious plasma parameters. The inherent coupling among the various variables calls for an integrated approach for the design of the controllers. This paper desc…

The Integrated tokamak modelling taskforce was set up to provide the European scientific community with simulation tools for preparing and analysing discharges of fusion experiments. We will report on recent progress made on the taskforce project on equilibrium and linear stability. A generic data structure has been devised to describe the geometry…

The first electron temperature modulation experiments in plasmas characterized by strong and longlasting electron and ion internal transport barriers (ITB) have been performed in JET using ion cyclotron resonance heating in mode conversion scheme. The ITB is shown to be a well localized narrow layer with low heat diffusivity, characterized by subcr…
