Creation of JT-60SA scenarios is necessary in order to make deeper analyses: Fast ions, heating schemes, MHD. Validation exercise: a series of representative discharges of the three main operational scenarios, H-mode, hybrid and steady-state have been selected for each device in order to extrapolate to JT-60SA. An extensive analysis of the main physics similarities and differences among the discharges has been carried out in order to explain results. Using integrated modelling codes CRONOS and TOPICS, benchmark of the codes is done. Predictive core turbulence simulations have been carried out with three transport models: Bohm-GyroBohm, CDBM and GLF23. Particle transport is analyzed with GLF23. Pressure pedestal predictions are simulated with Cordey MHD scaling. Fully predictive simulations of temperatures, density and pedestal have been performed with GLF23 and CDBM models for the temperatures and GLF23 for the density. Calculations for JT-60SA are performed following the best combination of models found.
