Overview of recent experimental results on MAST

Ahn, J W; Appel, Lynton C; Conway, N.J.; Dnestrovskij, A.; Robinson, Douglas; Roach, C.M.; Shibaev, S; Hole, Matthew


The low aspect ratio of the mega amp spherical tokamak (MAST) allows differentiation between different forms of the H-mode threshold scaling. With optimized fuelling using inboard puffing, and a connected double null divertor (DND) magnetic configuration, the H-mode power threshold data lie about 1.7 times higher than recent scaling laws. Slight magnetic configuration changes, of the order of the ion Larmor radius, around a connected DND significantly influence H-mode access. H-mode confinement...[Show more]
