In this work the mechanisms that can lead to disruptive MHD instabilities in the termination phase of plasma pulses on JET are investigated. It is shown that the broadening or the shrinking of the current density profile, as a consequence of a core hollowing or a edge cooling of the electron temperature profile, can lead to the destabilization o…

In tokamak operation the control of dangerous MHD instabilities, possibly in r-t scenarios, must rely on prompt robust diagnostics of the state and stability of the system. The set of magnetic signals measured on the outside of the plasma boundary, based on the Zakharov-Shafranov, Shkarowsky, Wootton (ZSSW) current moments has been always used f…
