Global electrostatic ITG turbulence physics, together with background dynamics, has been simulated in realistic tokamak core geometry using XGC1, a full-function 5D gyrokinetic particle code. Adiabatic electron model has been used. Some verification exercises of XGC1 have been presented. The simulation volume extends from the magnetic axis to the pedestal top inside the magnetic separatrix. Central heating is applied, and a number, momentum, and energy conserving linearized Monte-Carlo Coulomb… CONTINUE READING
