Abstract

Recent results on Tore Supra regarding heating, confinement, current drive and profile modifications are reported. Experiments achieving radiation rates of up to 80 % (total injected power up to 7 MW) have been performed in both ergodic divertor and limiter configurations. Direct coupling of the fast magnetosonic wave to the electrons has demonstrated coupling up to 5 MW and efficient electron heating. An analysis of local transport and microturbulence in Tore Supra is also presented, together with posters on the axisymmetric divertor, steady state plasma control and high power LH coupling, and European negative ion based neutral beam developments are reviewed.
