    • Non-linear MHD Simulation s of Pellet Triggered ELMs in JET and ASDEX Upgrade tokamaks 

      Futatani, Shimpei; Pamela, S.; Huijsmans, G.T.A.; Garzotti, L.; Frigione, D.; Loarte, D.; Hoelzl, M.; Lang, P.T.; Kocsis, G.; Orain, F.; Dunne, M.; Lessig, A.; Mantsinen, Mervi; EUROfusion MST1 Team; ASDEX Upgrade Team; JET Contributors (2016-07-08)
      Open Access
      ITER operation in its high fusion performance DT scenarios relies on the achievement of the H-mode confinement regime, which is expected to lead to the quasi-periodic triggering of ELMs (Edge Localized Modes). ...
    • Nonlinear electromagnetic stabilization of ITG microturbulence by ICRF-driven fast ions in ASDEX Upgrade 

      de Oliveira, F.N.; Doerk, H.; Mantsinen, Mervi J.; Angioni, C.; Bilato, R.; Bobkov, V.; Dunne, M.; Gallart, D.; Gutiérrez-Milla, A.; Mantica, P.; Odstrcil, T.; Tardini, G.; Sáez, Xavier; ASDEX Upgrade Team; EUROfusion MST1 Team (2016-10)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Electromagnetic waves in the range of Ion Cyclotron Resonance Frequencies (ICRF) have many applications in fusion devices. While their use for external heating of magnetically confined fusion plasmas is well established, ...
    • Overview of ASDEX Upgrade results 

      ASDEX Upgrade Team; EUROfusion MST1 Team; Mantsinen, Mervi (International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), 2017-06-28)
      Article
      Open Access
      The ASDEX Upgrade (AUG) programme is directed towards physics input to critical elements of the ITER design and the preparation of ITER operation, as well as addressing physics issues for a future DEMO design. Since 2015, ...
    • Stabilization of microturbulence by fast ions n ASDEX upgrade 

      Oliveira, F.N. de; Doerk, H.; Mantsinen, M .J.; Angioni, C.; Bilato, R.; Gallart, D.; Gutiérrez-Milla, A.; Mantica, P.; Odstrcil, T.; Sáez, X.; Tardini, G.; ASDEX Upgrade Team; EUROfusion MST1 Team (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2017-05-04)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The goal of the present work is to study the impact of fast ions, generated by ICRH, on microturbulence. Our methodology is similar to that in [2] and is based on extensive simulations of discharges carried out on the ASDEX ...
    • The effects of electron cyclotron heating and current drive on toroidal Alfvén eigenmodes in tokamak plasmas 

      Sharapov, S.E.; Garcia-Muñoz, M.; van Zeeland, M.A.; Bobkov, B.; Classen, I.G.J.; Ferreira, J.; Figueiredo, A.; Fitzgerald, M.; Galdon-Quiroga, J.; Gallart, D.; Geiger, Benjamin; Gonzalez-Martin, J.; Johnson, T.; Lauber, P.; Mantsinen, Mervi; Nabais, F.; Nikolaeva, V.; Rodriguez-Ramos, M.; Sanchis-Sanchez, L.; Schneider, P.A.; Snicker, A.; Vallejos, P.; AUG Team; EUROfusion MST1 Team (IOP Publishing, 2017-11-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Dedicated studies performed for toroidal Alfvén eigenmodes (TAEs) in ASDEX-Upgrade (AUG) discharges with monotonic q-profiles have shown that electron cyclotron resonance heating (ECRH) can make TAEs more unstable. In these ...
