Quasilinear nature of L mode edge turbulent transport in fluid nonlinear simulations

Abstract : In tokamak plasma, the edge region is characterized by larger gradients, higher resisitivity and distance to the critical β shorter compared to core plasma. By edge, here we mean the region where the pedestal forms when transsiting from L to H-mode: r/a = 0.85 − 1. This paper shows, using a three-dimensional electromagnetic fluid turbulent transport model, that the quasilinear hypothesis is valid in the edge region. The diamagnetic coupling is stabilizing while β is destabilizing. The effect of β on the characteristic times of turbulence is studied, as its effect on the Reynolds stress and the Maxwell stress in these fluid simulations.
