20 Verification & Validation REALITY MEASUREMENT VALIDATION EXPERIMENT COMPUTATION ANALYSIS SIMULATION CODE DISCRETIZATION & CODING MODEL VERIFICATION
21 Our project, paradigm of turbulence code validation TORPEX? 3D GBS model 2D reduced model What is the agreement of experiment and simulations as a function of N? Is 3D necessary? What can we learn on TORPEX physics from the validation?
22 The validation methodology [Based on ideas of Terry et al., PoP 2008; Greenwald, PoP 2010] What quantities can we use for validation? The more, the better  Definition & evaluation of the validation observables What are the uncertainties affecting measured and simulation data?  Uncertainty analysis For one observable, within its uncertainties, what is the level of agreement?  Level of agreement for an individual observable How directly can an observable be extracted from simulation and experimental data? How worthy is it, i.e. what should be its weight in a composite metric?  The observable hierarchy How to evaluate the global agreement and how to interpret it  Composite metric
23 Definition of the validation observables? Common quantities Isat Vfloat IV Probe model, assumptions Validation observables Probe model, assumptions to be compared  Examples: Isat t, n t, Γ,...  A validation observable should not be a function of the others  Quantities to predict should be included among the observables n Te ϕ V i V e
24 Evaluation of the validation observables We evaluate 11 observables: Examples n [m 3 ] low N n(r) t T e (r) t I sat (r) t δi sat /I sat k v PDF(I sat )... experiment 3D 2D δi sat /I sat high N low N high N
25 Experiment Uncertainty analysis x 2 = x 2 fit + x 2 prb + x 2 rep + x 2 fin Simulation IV Fitting Probe properties, measurement uncertainties Plasma reproducibility Finite statistics y 2 = y 2 num + y 2 inp + y 2 fin Numerics Input parameters  scan in resistivity and boundary conditions Finite statistics
26 Agreement with respect to an individual observable Distance: Experimental measurements d = Average over all points 1 G G i=1 (x i y i ) 2 x 2 i + y2 i Simulation results Normalization to uncertainties Level of agreement: R = tanh[(d d 0)/λ]+1 2 R DISAGREEMENT AGREEMENT WITHIN UNCERTAINTY d 0 =1.5 λ = d AGREEMENT
27 Observable hierarchy Not all the observables are equally worthy The hierarchy assesses the assumptions used for their deduction h exp : h sim : # of assumptions to get the observable from experimental data same for simulation results h = h exp + h sim Examples:  n : h exp = 1, h sim t = 0, h = 1 Γ Isat  : h exp = 2, h sim = 1, h = 3
28 Composite metric Level of agreement R j = tanh[(d j d 0 )/λ]+1 2 Sum over all the observables Hierarchy level H j =1/(h j + 1) Sensitivity Normalization:  χ = 0: perfect agreement  χ = 0.5: agreement within uncertainty  χ = 1: total disagreement 28
29 The validation results 1 Complete disagreement 0.8 2D simulations D simulations Agreement within uncertainty N Perfect agreement Why 2D and 3D work equally well at low N and 2D fails at high N? What can we learn on the TORPEX physics?
30 Flute instabilities  ideal interchange mode k =0 n + T e eqs. Vorticity eq. 2 φ t i = 2B cm i Rn p e y p e t = c B [φ,p e] γ p e = ik y p e0c φ/b γ = γ I γ I = c s 2 L p R Compressibility stabilizes the mode at k v ρ s > 0.3γ I R/c s
31 Anatomy of a k =0 perturbation N =2 = L v /N L v λ v : longest possible vertical wavelength of a perturbation If k =0 then λ v = = L v N
32 TORPEX shows k =0 turbulence at low N! k =0 (λ v = L v /N ) Ideal interchange regime L v λ v L v λ v = N N
33 ! For N~16, ideal!! k =0! interchange modes dominant! N=2!
34 Turbulence changes character at N>7! 8 k =0 L v λ v k =0 WHY? (λ v = L v ) 0 λ v = L v N
35 At high N>7, Resistive Interchange Mode turbulence Toroidally symmetric λ v L v Introducing modes k =0 k stabilization, requires high N and η =0 γ 2 = γ 2 I γ 4πV 2 A k2 η c 2 k 2 y, γ I = c s 2 RL p
36 Why does TORPEX transition from ideal to resistive interchange for large N? N! Resistive interchange requires high N Ideal interchange requires low N: λ v = L v N thus k v = 2πN L v stable: k v ρ s > 0.3Rγ I /c s Threshold: N~10 in TORPEX
37 Interpretation of the validation results D D N k =0  Ideal interchange turbulence  2D model appropriate k =0  Resistive interchange turbulence  2D model not appropriate
38 Where can a verification & validation exercise help? 1. Make sure that the code works correctly Correct GBS implementation, rigorously, discretization error estimate 2. Compare codes 2D and 3D simulations agree with experimental measurements similarly at low N. Global 3D simulations are needed to describe the plasma dynamics at high N. 3. Let the physics emerge Two turbulent regimes: ideal interchange mode at low N and nonflute modes at high N. Parameter scans have a crucial role 4. Assess the predictive capabilities of a code 3D simulations predict (within uncertainty) profiles of n but not of I sat 38
39 What comes next?  Validation at each code refinement  Considering more observables  Involving more codes Limited SOL LAPD, UCLA HelCat, UNM TORPEX, CRPP Helimak, UTexas ITERlike SOL
40 What comes next? Validation on a recently achieved SOLlike configuration in TORPEX Limited SOL LAPD, UCLA HelCat, UNM TORPEX, CRPP Helimak, UTexas ITERlike SOL

42 Future work Missing ingredients for a complete description Use of more diagnostics: Mach probes, Triple probes or Bdot probes to compare other of plasma dynamics in TORPEX: interesting observables. Better source modeling Physics of neutrals Better boundary conditions 42
43 V&V A validation project requires a four step procedure: (i) Model qualification (ii) Code verification (iii) Definition and classification of observables (iv) Quantification of agreement 43
