Lower hybrid heating and current drive in ITER operation scenarios and outline system designFunded under: FP3-FUSION 11C
This report contains both modelling and design studies of an LHW (lower hybrid wave) system for ITER. It aims primarily at the definition of concepts and parameters for steady-state operation using LHW combined with fast waves (FW), or other methods of generating a central seed current for high bootstrap current operation. Simulations addressing the use of LHW for current profile control in the high current pulsed operation scenario are also presented. The outline design of a LHW system which covers the needs for both pulsed and steady-state operation is described in detail.
