Abstract

During its first year of operation, Tokamak à Configuration Variable TCV has achieved a wide variety of plasma shapes, limited and diverted, attaining 810 kA plasma current and elongation over 2.0 Ohmic H modes have been regularly produced, with a maximum confinement time of 80 ms and a maximum normalized beta(N) of 1.9. The conditions for the H mode transition differ from other experiments. The transitions from ELM free to ELMy H modes and back have been selectively triggered for configurations close to a double null.
