The interaction of Alfvén Eigenmodes (AEs) and energetic particles will determine the success of future tokamaks. In JET, eight in-vessel antennas were installed to actively probe stable AEs with frequencies ranging 25 – 250 kHz and toroidal mode numbers |n| < 20. During the 2019-2020 deuterium  campaign, almost 7500 resonances and …

This paper presents a dedicated study of plasma-antenna (PA) coupling with the Alfvén Eigenmode Active Diagnostic (AEAD) in JET. Stable AEs and their resonant frequencies f, damping rates < 0, and toroidal mode numbers n are measured for various PA separations and limiter versus X-point magnetic cofigurations. Two stable AEs are observed to be …

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…

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 dedicated external antennas, have been simu…

A load-tolerant External Conjugate-T (ECT) impedance matching system for two A2 Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ICRH) antennas has been successfully put into operation at JET. The system allows continuous injection of the RF power into plasma in the presence of strong antenna loading perturbations caused by Edge Localized Modes (ELMs). Reliable EC…
