Extended steady-state and high-beta regimes of net-current free heliotron plasmas in the Large Helical Device

The performance of net-current free heliotron plasmas has been developed by findings of innovative operational scenarios in conjunction with an upgrade of the heating power and the pumping/fuelling capability in the Large Helical Device (LHD). Consequently, the operational regime has been extended, in particular, with regard to high density, long pulse length and high beta. Diversified studies in LHD have elucidated the advantages of net-current free heliotron plasmas. In particular, an internal diffusion barrier (IDB) by a combination of efficient pumping of the local island divertor function and core fuelling by pellet injection has realized a super dense core as high as 5$$times$$10$$^{20}$$ m$$^{-3}$$, which stimulates an attractive super dense core reactor. Achievements of a volume averaged beta of 4.5% and a discharge duration of 54 min with a total input energy of 1.6 GJ (490 kW on average) are also highlighted. The progress of LHD experiments in these two years is overviewed by highlighting IDB, high-beta and long pulse.

Results from active control of neoclassical tearing modes (NTMs) by electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) in $mbox{JT-60U}$ are described. Evolution of an NTM with the poloidal mode number $$m=3$$ and the toroidal mode number $$n=2$$ has been suppressed by ECCD inside the sawtooth inversion radius in the co-direction, showing the possibility of the coexistence of sawtooth oscillations and a small-amplitude $$m/n=3/2$$ NTM without large confinement degradation. Stabilization of an $$m/n=2/1$$ NTM by ECCD at the mode rational surface has been demonstrated with a small value of the ratio of the current density driven by electron cyclotron (EC) wave to the local bootstrap current density ($$sim 0.5$$). Also, dependence of the stabilization effect on ECCD location has been investigated in detail, and it has been clarified that an $$m/n=2/1$$ NTM can be completely stabilized with the misalignment of the ECCD location less than about half of the island width, and that the $$m/n=2/1$$ NTM is destabilized with the misalignment comparable to the island width. Time-dependent, self-consistent simulation of magnetic island evolution using the TOPICS code has shown that the above stabilization and destabilization of an $$m/n=2/1$$ NTM are well reproduced with the same set of coefficients of the modified Rutherford equation. The TOPICS simulation has also clarified that EC wave power required for complete stabilization can be significantly reduced by narrowing the ECCD width.

The $$m=2$$ /$$n=1$$ neoclassical tearing mode (NTM) has been observed to strongly degrade confinement and frequently lead to a disruption in high $$beta$$ discharges in DIII-D if allowed to grow to large size. Stabilization of grown NTMs by application of highly localized electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) at the island location has led to operation at increased plasma pressure, up to the no-wall kink limit. After the NTM is stabilized by the ECCD, the correct location for the current drive is maintained using information from real-time equilibrium reconstructions which include measurements from the motional Stark effect diagnostic. This same process is used alternatively to prevent the mode from ever growing, leading to performance at the pressure limit in high performance hybrid discharges with $$beta$$ above 4%. Modeling using the modified Rutherford equation shows that the required power is in close agreement with the experimental threshold for prevention of the 2/1 NTM.

Prevention of the 2/1 neoclassical tearing mode in DIII-D

Onset of the m/n=2/1 neoclassical tearing mode (NTM) has been prevented in high-performance DIII-D discharges using localized electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD). Active tracking of the $$q$$=2 surface location, using real-time equilibrium reconstructions with motional Stark effect data, allows the current drive to be maintained at the rational surface even in the absence of a detectable mode. With the application of this technique in DIII-D hybrid discharges, the 2/1 mode is avoided and good energy confinement is maintained for more than 1 second with $$beta$$ at the estimated n=1 no-wall stability limit for ideal kink modes ($$beta$$$$_{rm T}$$ approximately equals 3.9 % and normalized beta $$beta$$$$_{rm N}$$ approximately equals 3.2). The results can be understood through modeling using the modified Rutherford equation.
