Characteristics of type I ELM energy and particle losses in existing devices and their extrapolation to ITER
Analysis of Type I ELMs from ongoing experiments shows that ELM energy losses are correlated with the density and temperature of the pedestal plasma before the ELM crash. The Type I ELM plasma energyExpand
