Report on vertical stability studies during the plasma start-up at ITER (Task 2.1e)Funded under: FP3-FUSION 11C
This note summarises the work performed on vertical stability studies during the plasma start up in the ITER TAC3 and TAC4 configurations. The main aim is to analyse plasma stability properties at low plasma current when the effect of vessel-blanket eddy current is substantial. The main tool used for this work is the PROTEUS code in its direct implementation as used for the pumped divertor design. Some details of the calculation techniques and difficulties encountered are illustrated.
