Type-I edge-localized modes (ELMs) have been mitigated at the JET tokamak using a static external n 1 perturbation field generated by four error field correction coils located far from the plasma. During the application of the n 1 field the ELM frequency increased by a factor of 4 and the amplitude of the D signal decreased. The energy loss per ELM normalized to the total stored energy, W=W , dropped to values below 2%. Transport analyses shows no or only a moderate (up to 20%) degradation of energy confinement time during the ELM mitigation phase.
