KSTARのLモードおよびHモードプラズマにおいてエネルギー閉じ込め特性を定量的に評価し、多変数回帰解析を行い多装置スケーリング則と比較した。解析したKSTARプラズマのエネルギー閉じ込め時間はLモードで0.04-0.16秒、Hモードで0.06-0.19秒の範囲にある。多変数回帰解析によると、閉じ込め時間は多装置スケーリング則と比較して損失パワーに関しては同程度の、プラズマ電流に関してはわずかに強い依存性が見られた。一方で、非円形度に関しては多装置スケーリング則が正の冪乗依存性を示すのに対してKSTARでは負の冪乗依存性を示した(Lモードで-0.68乗、Hモードで-0.76乗)。KSTARでは非円形度の増加と共にダイバータ足位置が移動するため、不純物の混入量が増加して閉じ込めを劣化させているなどの原因が考えられる。

We evaluate the characteristics of global energy confinement in KSTAR ($$tau_{E, rm KSTAR}$$) quantitatively by comparing it with multi-machine scalings, by deriving multiple regression equations for the L- and the H-mode plasmas, and evaluating confinement enhancement of the H-mode phase compared with the L-mode phase in each discharge. From the KSTAR database, $$tau_{E, rm KSTAR}$$ of L-mode plasmas exhibits $$sim 0.04$$ s to $$sim 0.16$$ s and $$tau_{E, rm KSTAR}$$ of H-mode plasmas $$sim 0.06$$ s to $$sim 0.19$$ s. The multiple regression equations derived by statistical analysis present the similar dependency on PL and slightly higher dependency on IP compared with the multi-machine scalings, however the dependency on elongation $$kappa$$ in both L- and H-mode plasmas draw the negative power dependency of $$kappa^{-0.68}$$ and $$kappa^{-0.76}$$ for H-mode and for L- mode database, respectively on the contrary to the positive dependency in all multi-machine empirical scalings. Although the reason is not clear yet, two possibilities are addressed. One is that the wall condition of KSTAR was not clean enough. The other is that striking points on the divertor plate were uncontrolled. For these reasons, as $$kappa$$ increases, the impurities from the wall can penetrate into plasmas easily. As a consequence, the confinement is degraded on the contrary to the expectation of multi-machine scalings.
