A new code is presented here, named Gyrokinetic SEmi-LAgragian (GYSELA) code, which solves 4D drift-kinetic equations for ion temperature gradient driven turbulence in a cylinder (r, h, z). The code validation is performed with the slab ITG mode that only depends on the parallel velocity. This code uses a semi-Lagrangian numerical scheme, which exhibits(More)
A global plasma turbulence simulation code, ORB5, is presented. It solves the gyrokinetic electrostatic equations including zonal flows in axisymmetric magnetic geometry. The present version of the code assumes a Boltzmann electron response on magnetic surfaces. It uses a Particle-In-Cell (PIC), δf scheme, 3D cubic B-splines finite elements for the field(More)
A semi-Lagrangian code for the solution of the electrostatic drift-kinetic equations in straight cylinder configuration is presented. The code, CYGNE, is part of a project with the long term aim of studying microturbulence in fusion devices. The code has been constructed in such a way as to preserve a good control of the constants of motion, possessed by(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t The European Integrated Tokamak Modelling Task Force (ITM-TF) is developing a new type of fully modular and flexible integrated tokamak simulator, which will allow a large variety of simulation types. This ambitious goal requires new concepts of data structure and workflow organisation, which are described for the first(More)
