Task force goal:
“Develop pumping and fueling tools, operating scenarios, and control systems to achieve main-ion and impurity density control for long-pulse”

Scope includes XPs related to:

  • Main-ion fueling optimization via PCS and/or real-time control
  • Wall coating and preparation optimization for increased particle pumping
  • Reduction / control of impurity ion source rates
  • Natural and paced ELMs for impurity and main ion flushing
  • Real-time density measurements for density feed-back control
  • Physics design and performance characterization of divertor cryo-pump (if/as resources permit implementation of cryo-pump)
Due date: No later than end of FY17 run for non-cryo-pump elements
