Abstract

The dynamic behaviour of the electron temperature profile was studied in different phases of the TEXTOR Tokamak discharge. The profile evolution was observed during start-up, flat-top and current ramp-down phase. Detailed measurements during sawtooth activity and density limit disruption were obtained. The heat diffusivity was evaluated from heat pulse propagation data. The energy and current quench times were recorded in a density limit disruption after a preceding profile contraction.
