JET was extensively modified in the 1992/93 shutdown. The new pumped divertor and many new systems were brought into operation early in 1994. Operations have progressed to 4 MA plasma current and, with substantial additional heating, H-mode confinement results confirm the expected scaling. The high power handling capability of the pumped divertor with sweeping is estimated at 20 MW for 20 s. H-mode plasmas have large Type I ELMs. With lower hybrid heating alone, 2 MA full current drive has been achieved with good efficiency, and with ICRF power, effective heating and direct electron heating have been demonstrated.
