This work studies the behavior of the plasma in the outer part of the vessel, where the magnetic field lines are no longer closed, this part in called scrape off layer. The machine studied is the experimental fusion reactor ASDEX upgrade. This chapter will introduce the topic of this research project. The motivation of the research is explained firstly, followed by research focus and research background. Finally, the thesis outline is given.
