Abstract

Preliminary integrated control of NTMs, beta and model-estimated q profiles has been demonstrated experimentally in TCV for the first time. An upgrade of the supervision layer is foreseen. Dedicated NTM tests show that density affects the triggering of NTMs through global q profile modifications with central co-ECCD - too low or too high density will hinder the triggering. More detailed simulations are ongoing to further clarify these effects.
