ASSESSMENT OF PELLET INJECTION FOR NET. PART IV - AN ESTIMATE OF THE EFFECT OF ENERGY CARRIERS OTHER THAN THERMAL ELECTRONS ON THE ABLATION OF PELLETS IN PLASMAS
The effect of runaway electrons, NB ions and alpha particles is estimated by calculating the reduced ablation rates caused by these particles in fusion plasmas and using the ablation rate induced by thermal electrons as reference quantity. Calculations have been performed for various energy content (i.e. beta) ratios. The results show that in certain parameter intervals the effect of non-thermal particles may be significant.
