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 simulat…

A nonlinear bump-on-tail model for the growth and saturation of energetic particle driven plasma waves has been extended to include two populations of fast particles - one dominated by dynamical friction at the resonance and the other by velocity space diffusion. The resulting temporal evolution of the wave amplitude and frequency depends on the re…
