Abstract

Helium removal experiments are a major part of the ALT-II pump limiter program on TEXTOR. The aim is to find out operational conditions under which a future, stationary burning reactor can operate without being extinguished by the helium ash accumulation. For TEXTOR it has been shown that the figure of merit is sufficiently low for L-mode discharge conditions even with strong radiative cooling, but it is too large for H-mode discharges. It has also been demonstrated that energetic helium ions can be expelled by coupling ion cyclotron waves to this particle group.
