Plasma scram scenarios in ITER triggered by fuel switch-offFunded under: EAEC-FUSION 12C
This paper addresses the implications of plasma scram (PS) in the perspective of a security study for ITER. A highly passive PS scenario is considered by switch-off of the DT fuel while maintaining constant the particle exhaust efficiency as well as the plasma current. PS simulations are performed with the local Rebut-Lallia-Watkins (RLW) transport model, in order to give an order of magnitude of the timescales of such a process and to establish a passively secure operation point in steady-state.
