Resumo

Rare Alfvenic wave transitions between fixed-frequency and chirping phases are identified in NSTX, where Alfvenic waves are normally observed to exhibit either chirping or avalanching responses. For those transitions, we apply a criterion (Duarte et al 2017 Nucl. Fusion 57 054001) to predict the nature of fast ion redistribution in tokamaks to be in the convective or diffusive nonlinear regimes. For NSTX discharges in which the transition is not accompanied by changes in the beam deposited power or modifications in the injected radiofrequency power, it has been found that the anomalous fast ion transport is a likely mediator of the bifurcation between the fixed-frequency mode behavior and rapid chirping. For a quantitative assessment, global gyrokinetic simulations of the effects of electrostatic ion temperature gradient turbulence and trapped electron mode turbulence on chirping were pursued using the GTS code. The investigation is extended by means of predictive studies of the probable spectral behavior of Alfvenic eigenmodes for baseline ITER cases consisting of elmy, advanced and hybrid scenarios. It has been observed that most modes are found to be borderline between the steady and the chirping phases. (AU)
