  1. 1. Turbulent impurity transport in tokamaks

    Author : Albert Mollén; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; gyrokinetic; tokamak; impurity; poloidal asymmetry.; turbulence; transport; fusion plasma physics;

    Abstract : Nuclear fusion is foreseen as one of the options for future energy production. One of the remaining scientific challenges for establishing the physics basis of future magnetic fusion reactors is to find scenarios where the impurity content in the core can be kept low. READ MORE

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fusion plasma physics; transport; turbulence; tokamak; gyrokinetic; impurity; stellarator; drift-kinetic; poloidal asymmetry;

    Abstract : Nuclear fusion is foreseen as one of the options for future energy production. In establishing the physics basis of future magnetic fusion reactors it is necessary to find scenarios where the impurity content in the core can be kept low. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gyrokinetic simulations of turbulent transport in tokamak plasmas

    Author : Andreas Skyman; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fusion; TEM; ITG; tokamaks; e-science; Joint European Torus; turbulence; gyrokinetics; plasma physics; impurity transport;

    Abstract : With the enormous growth of high performance computing (HPC) over the last few decades, plasma physicists have gained access to a valuable instrument for investigating turbulent plasma behaviour. In this thesis, these tools are utilised for the study of particle transport in fusion devices of the tokamak variety. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gyrokinetic simulations of microturbulence and transport in tokamak plasmas

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Daniel Tegnered; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ITG; Joint European Torus; impurities; transport; fusion; TEM; tokamak; turbulence; plasma physics; gyrokinetics;

    Abstract : Fusion power is one of few viable and sustainable means of energy production. The tokamak is arguable the most mature technology to magnetically confine fusion plasmas. In these devices, heat and particle transport is dominated by small-scale turbulent fluctuations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and measuring transport in fusion plasmas

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Istvan Pusztai; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fusion plasmas; ITG stability; microinstabilities; de-convolution; Lorentz operator; gyrokinetic equation; transport; quasilinear flux; beam emission spectroscopy; ion temperature gradient mode; electron density measurement; trapped electron response;

    Abstract : In the present thesis we consider theoretical and experimental aspects of the turbulent transport which is a crucial issue in fusion plasma physics.Experimental observations and gyrokinetic simulations show that collisions strongly influence the turbulent flux of particles. READ MORE
