Active control of type-I edge-localized modes with n=1 perturbation fields in the JET tokamak
2007 (English)In: Physical Review Letters, ISSN 0031-9007, Vol. 98, no 26Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Type-I edge-localized modes (ELMs) have been mitigated at the JET tokamak using a static external n=1 perturbation field generated by four error field correction coils located far from the plasma. During the application of the n=1 field the ELM frequency increased by a factor of 4 and the amplitude of the D-alpha signal decreased. The energy loss per ELM normalized to the total stored energy, Delta W/W, dropped to values below 2%. Transport analyses shows no or only a moderate (up to 20%) degradation of energy confinement time during the ELM mitigation phase.
