|Model predicts scenarios for energy generation using nuclear fusion|
In the context of the current research in controlled nuclear fusion, mechanisms that allow the existence of improved regimes of confinement (or H mode) have been drawing much attention. This kind of regime, characterized by an effective anomalous transport self-control, is triggered by mechanisms of suppression of intabilities, associated to geodesic acoustic modes (GAMs) and zonal flow...
Among the different methods, alternative to induction, to drive current in magnetically confined plasmas, with aim to obtain a continuous operation of a possible fusion reactor, we seek to study that associated to traveling magnetic field produced by helicoidal coils carrying out of phase radiofrequency currents (double helix current drive). The method should allow compensating resistiv...
Energetic particles (EPs) are used in fusion grade plasma experiments as a source of heat to overcome energy losses. It turns out however that they play a major role on instability excitations of magnetohydrodynamic modes. EPs can interact resonantly with these modes, causing particle and heat losses that degrade the confinement. We propose to study the interaction of EPs and toroidicit...
