The recently proposed set of zeroth-order moment equations to model poloidal density asymmetries induced by temperature anisotropies in rotating tokamak plasmas (R. Bilato et al., Nuclear Fusion 54 (2014) 072003) is here extended to account for the effects of the localization of the ion cyclotron (IC) resonance on the poloidal inhomogeneity of the …

The effects of poloidal asymmetries and heated minority species are shown to be necessary to accurately describe heavy impurity transport in present experiments in JET and ASDEX Upgrade. Plasma rotation, or any small background electrostatic field in the plasma, such as that generated by anisotropic external heating can generate strong poloidal den…
