Characteristics of the FTU scrape-off layer (SOL) determined by a simple 1-D model
A simple 1-D analytical model has been developed to determine the SOL characteristics from the parameters of the main plasma. The solutions are compared with FTU experimental data. The solutions fit well with the experimental data and their trend. The model suggests the presence of a critical density related to the non-isothermal power flux and the corresponding maximum power which can be safely removed by volumetric sinks. Differences between a limiter-like configuration and a divertor-like configuration are described.
