2D model validation of ASDEX-Upgrade scrape-off layer plasmas
Predictions for the plasma edge and divertor behaviour in future experiments require realistic, 2-dimensional numerical models, which have to be validated against present experiments. In ASDEX-Upgrade the B2-EIRENE code package is used to describe the scrape-off layer plasma and the neutral gas dynamics. Many exploratory runs have already been made to study exhaust optimisation, Marfes or deep divertors. This report presents the first attempts at a quantitative comparison with experimental results from ohmic ASDEX-Upgrade discharges.
