Emergent signature of a global scaling of heat transport in fusion plasmas
Other conference contribution, 2021
Note that the model will instantly yield necessary profile evolutions and could thus be used as a feedback control of the plasma stability and control in real time by predicting profiles and providing a tool to detect and perhaps prevent or mitigate destructive transport events. It should be noted, that in some cases there is a wider range of α parameters over the database because these plasmas are in essence very different with one another on many factors such as the NBI or ICRH input power, fueling scheme, ELM control, etc. What we are observing however, is that a significant number of these plasmas fall into a similar range for alpha parameter specially as the input power is increased yielding a transport model with predictive power in a wide parameter regime.
Finally, we would like to make a note that this study is the first of its kind and its findings are expected to encourage further discussion on the validity and the mathematical limitations of our current models to address global properties of transport in fusion plasmas.
