Abstract

Neutral beam heating data from JET has been analysed in detail to determine what proportion of the current is driven non-inductively. It is found that in low density limiter discharges, currents of the order of 0.5 MA have been driven whilst in H-mode plasmas currents of the order of 0.7 MA are measured. These currents are found to be in reasonable agreement with theoretical predictions. In low density plasmas the beam driven current is large whilst the neoclassical bootstrap current dominates H-mode plasmas.
