Linear simulations of toriodal Alfven eigenmodes (TAEs) driven by energetic particles (EPs) on EAST (Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak) are performed using the hybrid-kinetic MHD (HK-MHD) model implemented in NIMROD code. The EAST equilibrium is reconstructed using the EFIT code based on experimental measurement. The "slowing down" distribution is adopted for modeling the equilibrium distribution of the energetic ions from the deuterium neutral beam injection on EAST. The frequency… 



Simulation of fast-ion-driven Alfvén eigenmodes on the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak

Kinetic-MHD hybrid simulations are carried out to investigate possible fast-ion-driven modes on the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak. Three typical kinds of fast-ion-driven modes,

Linear properties of reversed shear Alfvén eigenmodes in the DIII-D tokamak

Linear properties of the reverse shear Alfvén eigenmode (RSAE) in a well-diagnosed DIII-D tokamak experiment (discharge #142111) are studied in gyrokinetic particle simulations. Simulations find that

Observation of odd toroidal Alfvén eigenmodes.

Experimental evidence is presented for the existence of the theoretically predicted odd toroidicity induced Alfvén eigenmode (TAE) from the simultaneous appearance of odd and even TAEs in a normal

Numerical study of Alfvén eigenmodes in the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak

Alfven eigenmodes in up-down asymmetric tokamak equilibria are studied by a new magnetohydrodynamic eigenvalue code. The code is verified with the NOVA code for the Solovev equilibrium and then is

Stability analysis of toroidicity-induced Alfvén eigenmodes in TFTR deuterium-tritium experiments.

The toroidicity-induced Alfven eigenmodes (TAE) are found to be stable in the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR) deuterium-tritium plasmas and a core localized TAE mode is shown to exist near the center of the plasma at small magnetic shear and finite plasma beta.

Existence of core localized toroidicity‐induced Alfvén eigenmode

The core‐localized toroidicity‐induced Alfven eigenmode (TAE) is shown to exist at finite plasma pressure due to finite aspect ratio effects in tokamak plasma. The new critical beta for the existence

Energetic particle effects on n = 1 resistive MHD instabilities in a DIII-D hybrid discharge

The δf kinetic-magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model in the 3D extended-MHD code NIMROD is used to perform a linear simulation study of energetic particle effects on the n = 1 mode in a DIII-D hybrid

Kinetic effects of energetic particles on resistive MHD stability.

It is observed that energetic particles have significant damping and stabilizing effects at experimentally relevant beta, beta(frac), and S, and excite a real frequency of the 2/1 mode.

Global hybrid simulations of energetic particle effects on the n=1 mode in tokamaks: Internal kink and fishbone instability

Global hybrid simulations of energetic particle effects on the n=1 internal kink mode have been carried out for tokamaks. For the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) [ITER Physics

Impact of velocity space distribution on hybrid kinetic-magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the (1,1) mode

Numeric studies of the impact of the velocity space distribution on the stabilization of (1,1) internal kink mode and excitation of the fishbone mode are performed with a hybrid
