Description

  • Content Description: Developing an understanding of the processes that control the H-mode transport barrier is motivated by the significant impact this small region (typically <2% of the minor radius) can have on overall plasma performance. Conditions at the inner edge of the H-mode transport barrier can strongly influence the overall energy confinement, and the maximum density, and therefore fusion power, that can be achieved with the typically flat H-mode density profiles [1,2]. The ELM instability, which usually regulates the pressure gradient in the H-mode edge, can result in large power loads to, and erosion of, the divertor targets in a reactor scale device [3]. The goal of H-mode pedestal research at DIII-D is to: (1) develop a physics based model that would allow prediction of the conditions at the top of the H-mode pedestal, (2) develop an understanding of processes which control Type I ELM effects in the core and divertor, and (3) explore alternatives to the Type I ELM regime.
