Abstract

Simple energy transport models of Bohm and gyro-Bohm type have been determined for the simulation and prediction of results in L-mode tokamak discharges and their thermal energy confinement scaling properties have been derived. The models have been tested on JET and ASDEX discharges and results show that the Bohm type model performs marginally better in simulations of JET discharges whereas simulations of ASDEX L-mode discharges are closer to the experimental ones with the gyro-Bohm model. Both models are then applied to predict ITER performance.
