Overall TSG objective: Enable predictions of fast ion behavior and associated instabilities in high-β, super-Alfvénic regimes (ITER/FNSF)

Thrust 1 - Develop predictive tools for *AE-induced fast ion transport
  • Reproduce fast ion transport for broad range of mode properties (frequency, spectrum, structure, regime)
  • Verification & Validation vs. NSTX-U data to assess predictive capability
Thrust 2 - Assess requirements for fast ion phase space engineering (towards Fnb and mode control)
  • Assess techniques to affect Fnb, mode properties through application of NB, RF, 3D fields, and/or external antennae
