2 2 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Motivation  Electron heat transport: one of the key issues in plasma controlled fusion.  Empirically divided into two parts:  Diffusion: proportional to temperature gradient.  Convection: proportional to temperature. Pinch: inward convection.  General form of transport equation  Methods  Steady-state analysis  Assumes flux  conjugate gradient  Perturbative analysis  Allows separation of: Responses to different gradients Diffusion and convection  Single pulse, modulation, step diffusive convective ……

3 3 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Phenomenon  Previous experiments  DIII-D, RTP, FTU, ASDEX-U  Signature of heat pinch  Negative effective heat diffusivity  Inward shift of the maximum of the T e amplitude compared to  dep T.C. Luce (DIII-D) 1992PRLP. Mantica (RTP) 2000PRLP. Mantica (ASDEX-U) 2006PPCF  Interpretation  Large error bars in heat diffusivity  This Inward shift can be explained by pure-diffusive model due to non- linear dependence on temperature and its gradient

4 4 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Experimental Setup in Tore Supra  Heating:  Ohmic: ~ 0.5 MW  ECRH: 118GHz, 2 × 300kW Gyrotrons, deposition width 3~5 cm, O-mode, off-axis,  dep ~ 0.5, low frequency modulation (1 Hz)  Diagnostics:  ECE: for for T e measurement, 32 channels, spatial resolution ~ 2.5 cm, time resolution 1 ms,  Reflectometry: for n e measurement, frequency sweeping time 20 ms; spatial uncertainty 1 cm  CX spectroscopy for T i measurement.  Basic parameters  I p ~ 0.7MA, B t ~ 3.7T  Two regimes:  High density case n e0 3~5 × m -3  Low density case n e0 1~3 × m -3 Ray tracing of EC waves Power deposition profile

5 5 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Experimental Results  n e0 = 1.5 ~ 1.8×10 19 m −3  Both T e and n e modulated  n e0 = 4 ~ 5.4×10 19 m −3  T e modulated n e less influenced

14 14 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Simulation with CGM Low Density Case

15 15 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Comparison between Models Low Density Case  Agreement on  e PB between CGM and CRONOS  Agreement on  e PB between CGM and LPM  Agreement between CGM V e eff and LPM V e around ECRH position  Additional heat pinch V add in CGM agrees with the one from LPM ( V e )

16 16 15th May 2012 Association EURATOM-CEA Shaodong Song Conclusions and Prospects  Experimental observations  Different behaviors in high and low density cases  Low density case: inward shift of maximum compared to the ECRH position observed  Simulation with LPM  High density case:  A heat pinch is needed at around r = 0.2  Diffusive model sufficient around ECRH position;  Low density case:  Heat pinch with larger value is needed around ECRH position.  Simulation with CGM  High density case:  Pure diffusive CGM can almost recover the Te and harmonic profiles, except on the amplitude profile inside r = 0.15;  Low density case:  Pure diffusive CGM can recover data outside r = 0.3.  Additional pinch is needed for r < 0.3.

Bourdelle 2002 NF]  Non-linear codes: GYSELA [V. Grandgirard 2007 PPCF]  Heat pinch  More ECRH power on HL-2A;  Correlation between heat pinch and density gradient length [L. Wang 2011 NF];  Find the negative diffusivity in the core region outside uncertainties.
