  1. 1. Global Turbulent EquiPartition (TEP) in Tokamak Plasma

    Author : Igor A. Ivonin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; turbulent plasma; TEP; scaling laws; transport barrier; tokamak; Astronomi; Astronomy and astrophysics; Astronomi och astrofysik; Space and Plasma Physics; rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Abstract : We studied analytically and numerically the establishment of global turbulent equipartition (TEP) of magnetised electrons in a tokamak plasma. This allows us to investigate self-consistently the inhomogeneous distributions of the plasma density, the electron and the ion temperatures, the generation of radial electric field and the poloidal and the toroidal rotation in the turbulent tokamak plasma.

  2. 2. Radially global neoclassical transport in tokamak pedestals

    Author : Stefan Buller; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tokamak; transport; global effects; collisional transport; fusion; drift-kinetics; plasma physics;

    Abstract : Nuclear fusion has the potential to become a sustainable energy sourcein the foreseeable future. The most developed system for fusion powerproduction is the tokamak, which magnetically confines a plasma at highenough temperature for fusion reactions to take place. READ MORE

  3. 3. Drift-Type Waves in Rotating Tokamak Plasma

    Author : Elina Asp; Vladimir Pavlenko; Hans Nordman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; fusion; plasma; tokamak; rotation; drift; ship; ITG; TE; Landau; Te Ti; hot-electron; confinement; stiffness; Weiland; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik; Space and Plasma Physics; rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Abstract : The concept of energy production through the fusion of two light nuclei has been studied since the 1950’s. One of the major problems that fusion scientists have encountered is the confinement of the hot ionised gas, i.e. the plasma, in which the fusion process takes place. READ MORE

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

    Author : Daniel Tegnered; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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. Material migration in tokamaks: Studies of deposition processes and characterisation of dust particles

    Author : Armin Weckmann; Marek Rubel; Per Petersson; Daniel Primetzhofer; KTH; []

    Abstract : Thermonuclear fusion may become an attractive future power source. The most promising of all fusion machine concepts is the tokamak. Despite decades of active research, still huge tasks remain before a fusion power plant can go online. One of these important tasks deals with the interaction between the fusion plasma and the reactor wall. READ MORE
