Abstract. Using resonant magnetic perturbations with toroidal mode number n = 3, we
have produced H-mode discharges without edge localized modes (ELMs) which run with
constant density and radiated power for periods up to about 2550 ms (17 energy
confinement times). These ELM suppression results are achieved at pedestal
collisionalities close to those desired for next step burning plasma experiments such as
ITER and provide a means of eliminating the rapid erosion of divertor components in
such machines which could be caused by giant ELMs. The ELM suppression is due to an
enhancement in the edge particle transport which reduces the edge pressure gradient and
pedestal current density below the threshold for peeling-ballooning modes. These n = 3
magnetic perturbations provide a means of active control of edge plasma transport.
