Experiments performed on FTU tokamak, aiming at validation of physics-based transport models of the electron temperature profile resilience, are presented. ECRH is used to probe transport features, both in steady state and in response to time-varying heating, while LHCD is used for current density profile shaping. The experiments clearly show resiliency in… CONTINUE READING
