The ASCOT code has been used to analyse transport and calculate the thermal conductivity in plasmas with toroidal field ripple. The scaling of the thermal conductivity with dimensionless plasma parameters is similar to transport in the ripple plateau regime . The ripple in machines with toroidal field coils similar to those in JET and JT-60U are quite different; while the maximum ripple is larger with 16 JET coils, the ripple at the X-point is larger with the JT-60U coils. The results are that the heat conductivity is similar in the two plasmas, while the particle losses are higher with the JT-60U coils.
