Target heat loading due to fast, transient heat pulses produced from a conical h-pinch as a prototype for benchmarking simulations of transient heat loads

Abstract

The ELM simulating plasma gun (ESP-gun) has been developed to study the effects of transient, blob-like plasmas on the plasma facing components of TOKAMAKs. ESP-gun utilizes a RF helicon plasma to pre-ionize a plasma column underneath a conical, h-pinch coil, which is used to compress and eject plasmas. Measurements have been made of the existing RF plasma… (More)
