Abstract

Scenarios of steady-state, fully non-inductive current in Tore Supra are predicted using a package of simulation codes (CRONOS). The plasma equilibrium and transport are consistently calculated with the deposition of power. The achievement of high injected energy discharges up to 1 GJ is shown. Two main scenarios are considered: a low density regime with 90% non-inductive current driven by lower hybrid waves—lower hybrid current drive (LHCD)—and a high density regime combining LHCD and ion cyclotron resonance heating with a bootstrap current fraction up to 25%. The predictive simulations of existing discharges are also reported.
