Discharge Optimization and the Control of edge Stability
Discharge optimization for improving stability of both core and edge was essential for the achievement of record fusion power discharges, in the ELM-free hot-ion H-mode regime, in the recent JET deuterium-tritium operation. In this paper the techniques used to increase edge stability are described. In particular, the paper reports on the successful technique of current ramp-down used to suppress the outer mode.
