11 ASDEX Upgrade: Improved H-mode data 1.6 ASDEX Upgrade Improved H-modes do not exclusively occupy the domain 1.4 H 98 (y,2) > 1 at β N = 2-3. H 98 (y,2) Any H-mode, when it manages to achieve high beta is likely to develop low central shear in the.8 centre, due to bootstrap current (overlap of grey and red data)..6 Improved H-modes H-modes (Type I) Physics criteria for improved H β N modes would depend on the details of the current density profile (not routinely available).

27 Conclusions ASDEX Upgrade: H-modes with low magnetic shear in the centre: H 98 (y,2) > 1 and β N = Operation at high density and T i /T e ~ 1 is demonstrated. Highest H 98 (y,2) values are achieved at relevant ν*. At q 95 =3.1: H 98 (y,2)=1.4, β N =2.9, fishbone activity keeps q(r) stationary. ECCD can be used to stabilise (3,2) NTM activity (q 95 ~3). predictions, scaling kinetic profile shapes : <n e >=.85n GW, keep β N,th. At q 95 =3.1: P fus =17 MW, Q=. At I p =9.5-12MA: P fus 3-6 MW, Q=6-15 (some cases P aux >73 MW). George Sips 21 st IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Chengdu, China, October 26 27
