Review: Pellet injection experiments and modeling

Funded under: FP7-EURATOM


During the last decade, significant progress has been made in the field of pellet injection with (1) the identification of the drift of the deposited material in the inhomogeneous magnetic field that opened the possibility of fuelling efficiently the plasmas from the high-field side of the torus, (2) the technique to mitigate ELMS in H-mode discharges with shallow pellet injection at high frequency and (3) with the development of high density, high performance scenarios close to the ITER requirements. Both the experimental and theoretical aspects of this domain are reviewed in this paper.
