Requirements for pellet injection parameters for plasma fuelling are assessed for ITER scenarios with enhanced particle confinement. A pellet injection throughput of 100 Pam$$^{3}$$/s would be sufficient. The assessment is based on the integrated transport simulations including models of pedestal transport, reduction of helium transport and boundary conditions compatible with SOL/divertor simulations. The requirements for pellet injection for the inductive H-mode scenario (HH98(y,2) = 1) are reconsidered taking account of a possible reduction of the particle loss obtained in some experiments at low collisionalities. The assessment of fuelling requirements is carried out for the hybrid and steady state scenarios with enhanced confinement with HH98(y,2) $$>$$ 1. A robustness of plasma performance to the variation of particle transport is demonstrated. A new type of steady state (SS) scenario is considered with neutral beam current drive (NBCD) and electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) instead of lower hybrid current drive (LHCD).
