Observation of strongly localized fast particles ripple losses in Tore- Supra
During additional heating in tokamaks, hot spots are commonly observed on the first wall components and are generally related to misalignments and/or limiter edge load, though more specific cases due to fast particles or toroidal field ripple have also been reported. Recently, during long pulse experiments with LHCD in Tore Supra, strongly localised hot spots have been observed deep inside each vertical port. In this paper an interpretation of this unusual feature is given, based on a comprehensive analysis of the ripple trapped particle dynamics.
