Effects of local toroidal field (TF) ripple due to test blanket modules (TBMs) for ITER on radial transport of thermal ions are investigated using fully three-dimensional magnetic field orbit following Monte Carlo (F3D-OFMC) code. The simulation under ITER plasma condition indicates that the additional losses caused by the localized TF ripple due to TBMs linearly increase with number of TBMs. When the amplitude of local TF ripple in one TBM port is increased, on the other hand, the additional losses increase quickly. A comparison of the number of lost particles suggests that a condition with three TBM ports corresponds to 1.7 times of ripple amplitude at one TBM port.
