Full f gyrokinetic simulation of transpor t in tokamak plasmas

Abstract

Introduction: The electromagnetic gyrokinetic (GK) plasma simulation [1] for toroidal magnetic fusion devices has become a standard tool for turbulence analysis. Recently, it has been recognized that transport involving dynamic changes in profiles requires modelling with full f GK methods [2]. In the present work, we report on transport simulations for the FT-2 tokamak plasma with a full f nonlinear 5D gyrokinetic electrostatic (ES) particle-incell code ELMFIRE using an implicit solution method for the full f plasma quasi-neutrality.
