With the C-wall sustained high performance (with H98y > 1.2 for > 5s) has been achieved in the hybrid regime and is compatible with core n = 1 activity. With the ILW sustained high performance is not achieved and confinement degradation is coincident with core n = 1 MHD (but causality between the MHD and confinement degradation has yet to be established). Due to their effects in causing tungsten impurity accumulation n = 2 and 3 NTMs have a much more significant effect with the ILW than with the C-Wall.
