  1. 1. Fast ions and turbulent particle transport in tokamaks

    Författare :Frida Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NBI; numerical modelling; turbulence; drift waves; bump-on-tail; density peaking; Fusion plasma physics; wave-particle interaction;

    Sammanfattning : The presence of highly energetic (fast) ions, be it fusion born alpha particles or ions accelerated by auxiliary heating schemes, can affect the heating and transport of all particles in the plasma through two main mechanisms. First, fast ions may excite fast ion driven instabilities. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On Monte Carlo Operators for Studying Collisional Relaxation in Toroidal Plasmas

    Författare :Qaisar Mukhtar; Torbjörn Hellsten; Tainia Kurki-Suonio; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion plasma; thermonuclear fusion; tokamak; Coulomb collisions; stochastic differential equations with singular diffusion coefficients; Monte Carlo schemes; spatial diffusion; modelling; Fokker-Planck equation; RF-heating.;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns modelling of Coulomb collisions in toroidal plasma with Monte Carlo operators, which is important for many applications such as heating, current drive and collisional transport in fusion plasmas. Collisions relax the distribution functions towards local isotropic ones and transfer power to the background species when they are perturbed e. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Gyrokinetic simulations of turbulent transport in tokamak plasmas
