EXPERIMENTAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE FT LIMITERS
Power flowing to the main limiter ranges from about 10% to about 40% of the inferred input power. The energetic balance with the radiated power reveals a systematic missing power suggesting localized radiation around the limiter. The temperature of the limiter, at the end of the discharges, increases with the density of the plasma. The observed asymmetry in the impurity deposition as well as in the macroscopic damage could be justified on the ground of the theoretical work recently carried out about the plasma flow in the shadow of a poloidal limiter.
