Impurity transport and its modification by MHD in tokamak plasmas, with application to Tungsten in the WEST tokamak

Abstract : The neoclassical transport of impurities is investigated analytically and numerically in this work, and the effect of a magnetic island for a WEST plasma is described. It is shown that the poloidal asymmetry of the impurity density can be described with a simple analytical model, and numerical simulations with a non linear fluid code confirm the analytical findings. The poloidal asymmetry tends naturally to cancel as the impurity profile evolves towards its steady state. When a magnetic island is present, temperature screening is lost locally above a critical island size. Tungsten transport is however dominated by turbulence on WEST. Simulations with a turbulent transport model confirm that the Tungsten profile is flat, as observed, but that the poloidal asymmetry remains close to its neoclassical value.
