Role of current profile and heating power in impurity transport in JET L-mode dischargesFunded under: FP3-FUSION 11C
This paper reports on systematic L-mode studies performed in order to analyse the variability of impurity transport depending on operative conditions and operation parameters. Numerical simulations are presented for a particular pulse having all the operating parameters in the middle of the respective spanned regions. Plots of D(r) and V(r) for different discharges are presented to show their dependence on electron density, plasma current, total heating power and the effect of transient I(p) conditions for I(p) = 7 MA discharges. The diffusion coefficient outside the central region is analysed with regard to its dependence on the discharge parameters. A comparision is made of the reduced diffusivity of the inner plasma region with the neoclassical theory.
