Abstract

The 1-D transport code PRETOR is uused to simulate TCV discharges having a very different plasma boundary shapes, from circular to highly elongated and from positive to negative triangularity. This wil enable a valid check for the RLW transport model, implemented in the code, with respect to four different plasma parameters: elongation, triangularity, the edge safety factor and the line density. We have seen that a large domain can be identified in which simulations are satisfactory, keeping a fixed choice of the three parameters allowed by the transport model. The limits of this domain have been investigated.
