The KSTAR main structures are almost completed. The significant progresses, especially on the manufacture and test of TF and PF superconducting magnets, have been achieved. (16 TF coils encased, 4 CS coils completed, 4 Large PF coilds ready for assembly) Machine assembly has to be finished by Aug. of 2007, then commisioning for integration will follow. If the SCMS are commisioned successfully, the first plasma shot is expected in June of KSTAR will open to the fusion research society not only domestically, but also internationally.

Predictive Hybrid Scenario Modeling Pre-heating L-H transition Ip = 1.0 MA, B = 2.0 T, P NBI = 8MW, /n GW = 0.5 Current ramp-up rates of KSTAR superconducting coils are too slow to adopt a conventional fast ramp-up method. o Current ramp-up rate of KSTAR : ~ 0.5 MA/sec o Necessary NBI preheating power : ~ 4 MW at t = 0.5 sec unrealistic scenario for KSTAR

Predictive Hybrid Scenario Modeling Pre-heating Off-axis current drive Ip = 1.0 MA, B = 2.0 T, P NBI = 8MW, P LH = 1.5 MW, /n GW = 0.5 The desired q-profiles can be obtained with the baseline heating and current drive systems of KSTAR by earlier central heating and subsequent off-axis current drive during the current rise phase. o Lower hybrid power for off-axis current drive : 1.5 MW o Necessary NBI preheating power : ~ 2 MW at t = 0.5 sec

17
A newly developed integrated simulation code C2 has been applied to predict high performance discharges of hybrid and standard H-mode scenario in the KSTAR tokamak. The simulations have focused on o finding optimum operation scenarios to establish and sustain a broad current profiles with q0 1. o estimating edge pedestal parameters and divertor heat load The desired q-profiles can be obtained with the baseline heating and current drive systems of KSTAR by earlier central heating and subsequent off-axis current drive during the current rise phase, although the current ramp-up rates of KSTAR superconducting coils are too slow to adopt a conventional fast ramp-up method. Both the temperatures at the top of the edge pedestal and divertor heat load are estimated self-consistently during ELMs in the main heating phase. Summary
