1 OVERVIEW OF THE ALCATOR CMOD PROGRAM IAEAFEC November, 2004 Alcator Team Presented by Martin Greenwald MIT Plasma Science & Fusion Center
2 OUTLINE CMod is compact, high field, high density, high power density B T to 8 T, I P to 2 MA P ICRH to 6 MW SOL Turbulence and Transport Self Generated Flows and Momentum Transport in the Core and Edge Hmode Threshold Control of ITBs Equilibrated ions, electrons No core momentum source No core particle source ICRF Mode Conversion Locked Modes Disruptions LHCD and Other NearTerm Plans
3 EDGE TURBULENCE DOMINATED BY LARGE STRUCTURES 1.5 Lmode separatrix =[V R =1000,V Z =0] m/s Z cm R Z (cm) =[V R =0,V Z =1000] m/s R major (cm) shot t= s Terry EX/P412 Edge turbulence visualized with highspeed camera (250,000 fps). Large, field aligned structures, blobs, account for most turbulence and transport. Analysis shows these structures move poloidally inside separatrix and accelerate radially outside.
4 POLOIDAL ASYMMETRIES IN SOL PROFILES AND FLUCTUATIONS SUGGEST THAT HIGHFIELD SIDE IS POPULATED VIA FLOWS FROM LOWFIELD SIDE SN plasmas have the same pressure on both sides. Fluctuations are always much lower on the highfield side (ballooning). DN plasmas have very low pressure on the highfield side. The selfgenerated symmetrizing flows are observed (M ~ 1) V//φ Ip B T cocurrent countercurrent V//φ
5 STRONG TOROIDAL ROTATION IN ABSENCE OF EXTERNAL TORQUE IS THERE A CONNECTION TO BOUNDARY PHYSICS? TO REVIEW Strong selfgenerated toroidal flows Rotation increases in cocurrent direction as plasma pressure increases Decreases with I P Mach numbers up to Similar trends seen for RF and OH heated plasmas not an RF or fast particle effect DV V (10 Tor 4 4 m/s) Rotation Increases with Pressure ICRF Ohmic DW W (kj) (Plasma Pressure, Power)
6 MOMENTUM IS TRANSPORTED INWARD FROM OUTER REGIONS Evolution of rotation profiles following transitions can be modeled to yield transport coefficients o EDA diffusive o ELMfree large inward convection as well Important role for boundary In all cases, transport is much faster than neoclassical
7 SELFGENERATED CORE AND EDGE FLOWS EXTREMELY SENSITIVE TO MAGNETIC TOPOLOGY Toroidal Velocity (km s1) LSN DN Inner Probe ρ = 2 mm Outer Probe ρ = 1 mm Core Ar17+ Doppler USN SSEP  Distance Between Primary and Secondary Separatrix (mm) Scan separation between primary and secondary separatrix (SSEP) SSEP < 0 Lower null SSEP > 0 Upper null Over a few mm, rotation shifts in counter direction by km/s Scale comparable to SOL size. Links core and edge rotation Double null balance is critical
8 OBSERVATIONS OF SELFGENERATED FLOWS AND INWARD MOMENTUM TRANSPORT LEAD TO A NOVEL HYPOTHESIS FOR B DRIFT INFLUENCE ON LH THRESHOLD Power/temperature threshold is 2x higher for unfavorable topology  B ion drift away from SN. Edge rotation is sum of the two terms just described. o Topology dependent (from symmetrizing of ballooning transport) more counter for unfavorable geometry. o Pressure (power) dependent increases in cocurrent direction For unfavorable topology, discharge begins farther from threshold state. Toroidal Velocity (km s 1 ) Core Rotation SOL, near separatrix H(at transition) Upper Null Lower Null Total Input Power (MW) L
9 CORRELATION BETWEEN TOPOLOGY, ROTATION AND THRESHOLD IS STRONG A few mm change in SSEP result in 0 th order changes in rotation and threshold. Comparable in distance to SOL width!! SOL apparently provides crucial boundary condition for core rotation. Large variation for shots labeled DN by EFIT. (km/s) (MW) LSN Core Vφ before RF LH Threshold Power DN USN S SEP (mm) 0.8 MA 5.4 T 1.4 x /m 3 Rice EX/64
10 B EFFECT IS ONLY PART OF THE LH THRESHOLD STORY T e /L n 1/2 (kev/m 1/2 ) Theory Expt, USN Expt, LSN B T,0 (T) LH THRESHOLD COMPARED TO ANALYTIC THEORY Simulations: suppression of driftalfven turbulence via zonal flows. (Rogers 1998) Guzdar (PRL 2002) derives analytic formula. T B Θ = 0.45 L e 1/ 2 n 2/3 T 1/3 eff ( RA ) 1/ 6 Splits difference between favorable and unfavorable topologies. i Z
11 ITB STUDIES HAVE FOCUSED ON BARRIER CONTROL Barriers formed in CMod with offaxis ICRF heating. 6 r/a Steep density profiles, with χ EFF reduced to ion neoclassical levels across entire core. Application of onaxis power arrests density peaking and allows control of particle transport (impurity accumulation). n e (10 20 /m 3 ) T 4.5 T 6.3 T 3.9 T Barrier foot position is not linked to RF resonance location (or whether resonance is on low or highfield side) R (m)
12 BARRIER FOOT LOCATION DEPENDS MAINLY ON B T Barrier position can be varied from r/a ~ Strongest scaling is with B T ka<i P <800 ka Weaker scaling seen with I P. Barrier foot location at q ψ ~ Magnetic shear may be the critical parameter? R density foot (m) MHz 80 MHz B T (T)
13 PICTURE OF CONTROL MECHANISMS EMERGING FROM GYROKINETIC SIMULATIONS Offaxis heating flattens Te, begins to stabilize ITG. With reduced diffusivity, Ware pinch causes density to peak. Ernst TH/41 TEMs are destabilized by n. Discharge reaches steady state when TEM diffusivity balances Ware pinch. Barrier strength controlled by onaxis heating via T 3/2 dependence of turbulent diffusivity
14 FLUCTUATIONS SEEN WITH PCI MAY SUPPORT ITB SCENARIO PCI has very high S/N, dynamic range, wide bandwidth (to 5 MHz) Fluctuations at kρ s ~ increase as barrier develops Autopower [a.u.] ITB formation Developed ITB At Transition Fully developed ITB TEM? 108 Future work will help localize fluctuations and extend k range Frequency [MHz]
15 MODE CONVERSION ICRF FOR LOCALIZED HEATING, CURRENT DRIVE, FLOW DRIVE Power Deposition Measurements Validate Simulations of Mode Conversion Process Offaxis deposition with 23% H, 77% D (measured) at 80 MHz Ionion hybrid layer at r/a = 0.35 Total efficiency o Experiment 20% o TORIC 18%
16 ICRF MODE CONVERSION PROCESS STUDIED IN DETAIL WITH FLUCTUATION DIAGNOSTIC AND ADVANCED SIMULATION 40 Re(E+) 20 Z (cm) 0 20 Wright TH/P X = R R mgx (cm) Parallel version of TORIC with n r = 240, n m = 255. Resolves details of MC process. D/He3 at 50 MHz All three waves  FW, IBW, ICW seen in experiment with phase contrast imaging diagnostic (PCI). Porkolab P432
17 LOCKED MODE THRESHOLD HAS WEAK SIZE SCALING B ~ /BT ITER field B T (T) Set of external nonaxisymmetric control coils installed. Allow determination of intrinsic error field and mode locking threshold. Dimensionless identity experiments performed w/jet, DIIID. Weak size scaling found. CMod, DIIID, JET data in same range for n/n LIMIT. 5x range in machine size. Hutchinson EX/P56 Locked modes should not be worse for ITER than for current machines Coils allowed suppression of locked modes, 2 MA operation.
18 SIGNIFICANT DROP IN HALO CURRENT MAGNITUDE AND ASYMMETRY WITH MODIFIED DIVERTOR GEOMETRY Previous work found that halo currents scaled with I P /q 95 with strong poloidal asymmetry. After divertor modification, same scaling observed but with lower magnitude (1/2) and less asymmetry. Drop in halo current may be explained by change in plasma/divertor contact during VDE. Nota bene for future machines
19 FUTURE WORK: EMPHASIZES AT RESEARCH AND SUPPORT FOR BURNING PLASMAS (ITER) IN REACTOR RELEVANT REGIMES Reactor relevant conditions o Ions and electrons coupled; T i ~ T e o t PULSE > τ L/R o No core momentum or particle sources. Enabled by LHCD o 3 MW source at 4.6 GHz. o 4 x 24 waveguide array realtime phase control Cryopump for density control Prototype tungsten brush divertor tiles to help manage heat load. Long pulse DNB.
