CHANGES IN PARTICLE PUMPING DUE TO VARIATION IN MAGNETIC BALANCE NEAR DOUBLE-NULL IN DIII-D

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

OAK-B135 The authors report on a recent experiment examining how changes in the divertor magnetic balance affect the rate that particles can be pumped at the divertor targets. They find that both the edge density of the core plasma and divertor recycling play important roles in properly interpreting this pumping result. Previous studies on DIII-D have identified several important differences between double-null (DN) and single-null (SN) divertor operation. Small variations in the magnetic balance near-DN have large effects on both the power- and particle loadings at the divertor targets. These most likely result from an interplay between the plasma geometry ... continued below

Description

OAK-B135 The authors report on a recent experiment examining how changes in the divertor magnetic balance affect the rate that particles can be pumped at the divertor targets. They find that both the edge density of the core plasma and divertor recycling play important roles in properly interpreting this pumping result. Previous studies on DIII-D have identified several important differences between double-null (DN) and single-null (SN) divertor operation. Small variations in the magnetic balance near-DN have large effects on both the power- and particle loadings at the divertor targets. These most likely result from an interplay between the plasma geometry and ion particle drifts, e.g., ''B x {del}B'' and ''E x B'' drifts. Other studies have shown that changes in magnetic balance affect the core plasma and where ELMs strike the vessel. In this paper, they examine how variations in the magnetic balance impact the rate at which particles are removed from the core plasma via pumping.
