We report on observations of bursty mode activity during early neutral beam heating in KSTAR plasmas, before current flat top while the q profile is still evolving. The magnitude of the activity increases with early beam heating, and reduces with the addition of resonant magnetic perturbation magnetic field coils. A mode analysis yields a toroidal mode number of n = 2. The mode is observed to be downward chirping in frequency, and exists for the duration of the slowing-down of the beam....[Show more]
