In order to prepare adequate current ramp-up and ramp-down scenarios for ITER, present experiments from several tokamaks have been analyzed by means of integrated modeling in view of determining relevant heat transport models for these operation phases. The results of these studies are presented and projections to ITER current ramp-up and ramp-down scenarios are done, focusing on the baseline inductive scenario (main heating plateau current of 15 MA). Various transport models have been tested by means of integrated modeling against experimental data from ASDEX Upgrade, C-Mod, DIII-D, JET and Tore Supra, including both Ohmic plasmas and discharges with additional heating/current drive. With using the most successful models, projections to the ITER current ramp-up and ramp-down phases are carried out. Though significant differences between models appear on the electron temperature prediction, the final q-profiles reached in the simulation are rather close.

Study on current drive capability of lower hybrid waves and neutral beam in an ITER steady state scenario

Oikawa, Toshihiro; Shimada, Michiya; Polevoi, A. R.*; Naito, Osamu; Bonoli, P. T.*; Hayashi, Nobuhiko; Kessel, C. E.*; Ozeki, Takahisa

Proceedings of 21st IAEA Fusion Energy Conference (FEC 2006) (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2007/03

The current drive capability of lower hybrid waves is assessed for an ITER steady state scenario using a relativistic, one-dimensional Fokker-Planck code and a toroidal ray tracing code. The present LH launcher design provides a current drive efficiency of 1.8$$times$$10$$^{19}$$AW$$^{-1}$$m$$^{-2}$$ and an off-axis profile of the driven current that is fovarable for a reversed magnetic shear configuration. Possible optimizations in the LH power spectrum are investigated. Neutral beam current drive (NBCD) is investigated with theoretical codes employing different approaches. An NBCD code employing the bounce-averaged Fokker-Planck equation to include orbit effects in a toroidal system shows a good agreement with an orbit following Monte-Carlo code.

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).

ITER is an experimental fusion reactor for investigation and demonstration of burning plasmas, characterised of its heating dominated by alpha-particle heating. ITER is a major step from present devices and an indispensable step for fusion reactor development. ITER's success largely depends on the control of plasma-wall interactions(PWI), with power and particle fluxes and time scales one or two orders of magnitude larger than in present devices. The strategy for control of PWI includes the semi-closed divertor, strong fuelling and pumping, disruption and ELM control, replaceable plasma-facing materials and stepwise operation.

Progress in physics basis and its impact on ITER

This paper summarises recent progress in the physics basis and its impact on the expected performance of ITER. Significant progress has been made in many outstanding issues and in the development of hybrid and steady state operation scenarios, leading to increased confidence of achieving ITER's goals. Experiments show that tailoring the current profile can improve confinement over the standard H-mode and allow an increase in beta up to the no-wall limit at safety factors $$sim$$ 4. Extrapolation to ITER suggests that at the reduced plasma current of $$sim$$ 12MA, high Q $$>$$ 10 and long pulse ($$>$$1000 s) operation is possible with benign ELMs. Analysis of disruption scenarios has been performed based on guidelines on current quench rates and halo currents, derived from the experimental database. With conservative assumptions, estimated electromagnetic forces on the in-vessel components are below the design target values, confirming the robustness of the ITER design against disruption forces.

Performance of ITER as a burning plasma experiment

Recent performance analysis has improved confidence in achieving Q $$>$$ 10 in inductive operation in ITER. Performance analysis based on empirical scaling shows the feasibility of achieving Q $$>$$ 10 in inductive operation with a sufficient margin. Theory-based core modeling indicates the need of high pedestal temperature (2-4 keV) to achieve Q $$>$$ 10, which is in the range of projection with pedestal scaling. The heat load of type-I ELM could be made tolerable by high density operation and further tilting the target plate (if necessary). Pellet injection from High-Field Side would be useful in enhancing Q and reducing ELM heat load. Steady state operation scenarios have been developed with modest requirement on confinement improvement and beta (HH98(y,2) $$>$$ 1.3 and betaN $$>$$ 2.6). Stabilisation of RWM, required in such regimes, is feasible with the present saddle coils and power supplies with double-wall structure taken into account.

Performance analysis based on empirical scaling shows the feasibility of achieving Q $$geq$$ 10 in inductive operation. Analysis has also elucidated a possibility that ITER can potentially demonstrate Q $$sim$$ 50, enabling studies of self-heated plasmas. Theory-based core modeling indicates the need of high pedestal temperature (3.2 - 5.3 keV) to achieve Q $$geq$$10, which is in the range of projection with presently available pedestal scalings. Pellet injection from high-field side would be useful in enhancing Q and reducing ELM heat load in high plasma current operation. If the ELM heat load is not acceptable, it could be made tolerable by further tilting the target plate. Steady state operation scenarios at Q = 5 have been developed with modest requirement on confinement improvement and beta (HH98(y,2) $$geq$$ 1.3 and betaN $$geq$$ 2.6). Stabilisation of RWM, required in such regimes, is feasible with the present saddle coils and power supplies with double-wall structure taken into account.

ITER will be the first magnetic confinement device with burning DT plasma and fusion power of about 0.5 GW. During the past few years, new results have been obtained that substantiate the confidence in achieving Q $$>$$ 10 in ITER with inductive H-mode operation. These include achievement of a good H-mode confinement near the Greenwald density at high triangularity of the plasma cross section; improvements in theory-based confinement projections for the core plasma; improvement in helium ash removal due to the elastic collisions of He atoms with D/T ions in the divertor predicted by modelling; demonstration of feedback control of NTMs and resultant improvement in the achievable beta-values; better understanding of ELM physics and development of ELM mitigation techniques; and demonstration of mitigation of plasma disruptions. ITER will have a flexibility to operate also in steady state and intermediate (hybrid) regimes. The paper concentrates on inductively driven plasma performance and discusses requirements for steady-state operation in ITER.

ITER operational scenarios with the high field side pellet fuelling are considered. The possibility of reducing the energy losses per edge localised mode (ELM) to an acceptable level is discussed. Requirements on the pellet fuelling system for desirable ELM energy reduction are obtained. Self-consistent transport simulations of pellet fuelled scenarios reveal the possibility of the operation with moderate ELM losses, plasma density below Greenwald density, high energy multiplication factor Q$$sim$$20 and power across the separatrix above the L-H mode power threshold.
