JET experimental studies

Axisymmetric oscillations at L-H transitions in JET: M-mode
Found n=0, m=1 up-down magnetic oscillations to appear at the L to H transitions in JET. The magnetic oscillations is only present after the transition. It is also detected by pedestal diagnostics.

Presented at various conferences:


Characterising W radiation in JET-ILW plasmas Studied radiation from W ablated into L-mode plasmas.
Found that sawteeth dominates W redistribution, but nevertheless there is some evidence that W radiates considerably below 1 keV

Poster and Paper at 43rd EPS Conference on Plasma Physics, Leuven, Belgium, 4-8 July 2016

Effect of fuelling location on pedestal and ELMs in JET
Found that, with W divertor, fuelling location can affect pedestal Te. Also showing effect of W on pedestal.
Paper P1.006 and Poster of 41st EPS Conference on Plasma Physics, 23 - 27 June 2014]

Study of high temperature pedestals

Specific experiments were made at JET to study high temperature pedestals, in the range Te_ped ~2.5-5 keV. The idea was to see if the ELMs are qualitatively different when resistivity and collisionality are low. The surprising result of the experiment was a new insight on pedestal stability: with low gas fuelling and low recycling conditions (required to achieve high temperature pedestals) an Outer Mode often appears, delaying ELMs. The outer mode had been assumed to be an ideal kink, unstable in the steep gradient region of the pedestal, which would eventually grow into an ELM. We have now found that the outer mode is a fairly stable current ribbon, lasting as much as 1.5 s, located at the top of the pedestal. There are tantalising similarities with the EHO observed in DIII-D. This could provide a new route to ELM-free operation.

Tokamak Design

  • TEXT Upgrade: calculations for design of diverted plasma and corresponding divertor coils, mostly based on filament models of the plasma:
    • electromagnetic forces and insulation requirements on coils in steady operation and during disruptions,
    • power supply requirements for plasma position control,
    • effect of iron transformer on plasma stability
    • adapted EFIT code to be used in tokamaks with non-satured iron core.
  • USTX: the University Spherical Tokamak Experiment design proposal: all of the above, now with predictive EFIT,
    • additional shape control requirements due to effect of transformer currents on inboard plasma gap.
    • stability analysis with DCON
    • design of field null for efficient startup
