Plasma physics



In the area of plasma physics the RF Participant Team (PT) is developing calculation codes in accordance with requirement of the ITER Joint Central Team, improving earlier codes, and performing calculation tasks as per signed agreements. The main directions of the RF PT activity this year are as follows: — Integrated plasma modelling and development of ITER scenarios taking into account impurity dynamics; — neoclassical tearing mode (NTM) control; — study of resistive wall modes (RWMs) with models of vacuum vessel and feedback coils; — plasma disruption simulations; — development of plasma initiation model with a plasma equilibrium solver; — upgrade of neutral gas transport code (EIRENE) and its coupling to B2-Eirene package (this code package is now the basic tool for studying the divertor performance in ITER); — development of a model of high-pressure noble gas jet penetration into the plasma; — ICRF heating and current drive modelling; — calculation of high energy particle losses due to toroidal field ripple; — modelling of plasma current variation in major and minor disruptions; — development of an error field identification and correction method using the plasma response to the erro
