Abstract [en]

Numerical modelling of the effects of ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) on the stability of the internal kink mode suggests that ICRH should be considered as an essential sawtooth control tool in ITER. Sawtooth control using ICRH is achieved by directly affecting the energy of the kink mode rather than through modification of the magnetic shear by driving localised currents. Consequently, ICRH can be seen as complementary to the planned electron cyclotron current drive actuator. Simulations of the ICRH distribution using independent RF codes give confidence in numerical predictions that the stabilising influence of the fusion-born alphas can be negated by appropriately tailored minority 3He ICRH heating in ITER.
