Particle confinement processes are studied in detail on the Large Helical Device (LHD). Diffusion coefficients (D) and convection velocities (V) are estimated from density modulation experiments. The magnetic configuration and collisionality are widely scanned in order to investigate parameter dependences of D and V. To study the effect of the magnetic configuration, magnetic axis positions are scanned from 3.5 to 3.9 m. This scan changes the magnetic ripples quite significantly, enabling the effects of neoclassical properties on measured values to be widely elucidated. Dependences of electron temperature and helically trapped normalized collisionality are examined using the heating power scan of neutral beam injection.
