1 EFFECT OF PLASMA FLOWS ON TURBULENT TRANSPORT AND MHD STABILITY* by K.H. BURRELL Presented at the Transport Task Force Meeting Annapolis, Maryland April 3 6, 22 *Work supported by U.S. Department of Energy under Contract DEAC399ER /KHB/ci
2 INTRODUCTION: IMPORTANCE OF PLASMA FLOWS Plasma flows have important effects on tokamak stability and transport on spatial scales ranging from the gyroorbit scale to the machine size In many interesting cases, these flows are selfgenerated by the plasma For example, a key topic of presentday research is the effect of gyroradiusscale zonal flows on microturbulencedriven transport Somewhat larger scale flows include the changes in sheared E B flows observed at the L to H transition, the ERS transition and during the spinup associated with VH mode Sheared toroidal flows have been predicted to affect MHD ballooning mode stability [R.L. Miller, et al., Phys. Plasmas 2, 3676 (1995)] Toroidal flows with scales of the system size have been shown experimentally to stabilize the resistive wall mode 942/KHB/ci
3 GOALS OF PRESENTATION Briefly cover some of the previous results on plasma flows and their effects Pose a series of questions to motivate later discussion 942/KHB/ci

24 HEAVY ION BEAM PROBE MEASUREMENTS OF POSSIBLE ZONAL FLOWS As was pointed out by P. Schoch (APS, 21), HIBP systems on many devices (TEXT, JIPP TIIU, ISXB) have long seen fluctuations in the 2 to 5 khz range which were not understood TEXT data indicate these may be geodesic acoustic modes Retrospective analysis of TEXT results from 199 show E r fluctuations are consistent with m= poloidal structure Correlation of these E r fluctuations with density fluctuations is weak Frequency is consistent with GAM frequency over a range of radii E r fluctuations seen only for.6 r/a =.95 in discharges studied No E r significant fluctuations at smaller or larger radii Correlation length is short, about the sample volume size 942/KHB/ci
25 ~ FREQUENCY OF E r FLUCTUATIONS IN TEXT AGREES WITH GAM FREQUENCY 6 5 Frequency (khz) Curve is estimate of GAM frequency ~ Vertical bars show range of measured E r frequency Horizontal bars show radial spacing of sample locations r/a P. Schoch, APS /rs
26 ZONAL FLOW QUESTIONS Do the theoretically predicted zonal flows really exist? What criteria do we use to decide that zonal flows have been observed? Do detailed zonal flow properties really agree with theory? Why is the geodesic acoustic mode experimentally so obvious compared to the f zonal flow? How do we best measure the zonal flow s properties experimentally? Can we distinguish f zonal flows from mean flows? What are the relative roles of Reynold s stress and StringerWindsor drive in various plasma regions? 942/KHB/ci
27 POLOIDAL FLOW QUESTIONS What physics governs the mean poloidal flows in the plasma? What is the role of the physics described by neoclassical theory? May need to include collisions with fast ions (W. Houlberg, 22) What additional physics, if any, is needed to understand how the spontaneously generated poloidal rotation arises, for example, at the ERS transition? G.M. Staebler, Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 361 (2) How can we best test the neoclassical theory? 942/KHB/ci

Kim et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 72, 2199 (1994) 942/rs
29 TOROIDAL ROTATION QUESTIONS What physics governs the mean toroidal flow in the plasma? Does neoclassical theory play any role here? Even in ITB cases where the ion thermal diffusivity is neoclassical, the toroidal angular momentum diffusivity exceeds neoclassical by about a factor of 5 What physics must be added to that in neoclassical theory to understand this? How do we understand toroidal flow generation in the core of CMod plasmas in the apparent absence of toroidal torque? What role do MHD modes play in governing the toroidal plasma rotation? Are MHD modes only important near beta limits? How do we isolate the effects of MHD modes experimentally? 942/KHB/ci
30 TURBULENCE AND TRANSPORT CONTROL TECHNIQUES What new tools can we develop to locally reduce turbulencedriven transport by altering plasma flows? Present control tools (e.g. NBI) are crude and act over broad regions Control is the ultimate demonstration of understanding 942/KHB/ci
31 DIAGNOSTIC DEVELOPMENT ISSUES AND QUESTIONS How can we best use synthetic diagnostics from modeling codes? Need to develop improved experimental techniques to measure the zonal flow over wider regions of the plasma Need larger poloidal and radial range Improved signaltonoise Must refine the analysis techniques needed to compute the gyroorbit cross section effect on poloidal rotation measurements and then verify the calculations experimentally in order to test neoclassical poloidal rotation theory properly Improve techniques to measure MHD modes (e.g., resistive wall modes and Alfvén modes) which can affect rotation 942/KHB/ci

34 CONCLUSION Plasma flows have important effects on tokamak stability and transport on spatial scales ranging from the gyroorbit scale to the machine size In many interesting cases, these flows are selfgenerated by the plasma Key open questions include theory and experimental measurements in the areas of Zonal flows Poloidal and toroidal rotation Coupling of rotation and MHD modes 942/KHB/ci
