Modelling of the ASDEX-upgrade scrape-off layer plasma
For future fusion experiments such as ITER, the plasma edge and divertor region is of crucial importance with regard to power and particle control, impurity transport and helium removal. To understand the underlying physics, appropriate models have to be developed and must be validated using experiments in tokamaks such as ASDEX-Upgrade. These models can then also be used to predict the behaviour of future fusion devices or to optimise their design, and also to simulate different installations in present machines, in order to optimise them before installation in the machine. In this paper, first calculations with the B2-EIRENE code package for the design of a divertor baffle for the ASDEX-Upgrade tokamak are presented. This baffle will be installed to enhance the neutral gas pressure in the pumping duct for increased pumping capability.
