Abstract

A new model is proposed for heat transport in the L-mode regime, which is the commonest regime of operation of Tokamaks. This model is directly derived from a previous Bohm-like model tested on the Joint European Torus (JET) discharges by adding a gyro-Bohm-like part that is peaked in the plasma centre and dominates the heat flux in small machines. This model has been successfully tested on data from different experiments from the newly established international tokamak engineering reactor profile database.
