Abstract

The combination of ICRH+NNBI in FAST allows the generation of fast ion populations with different velocity space anisotropy and radial profiles. These energetic ion populations can excite meso-scale fluctuations with the same characteristics of those expected in reactor conditions and, for this reason, FAST can address a number of important burning plasma physics issues. Numerical simulation and modeling of energetic particle physics are based on the use of transport codes that are iteratively coupled with a bi-dimensional full wave-quasi-linear solver for ICRH, in order to determinate the normalized supra-thermal population pressure ßhot. The value of ßhot. as well the energetic particle distribution functions can be used as initial condition for numerical simulation studies, investigating the destabilization and saturation of fast ion driven Alfvénic modes. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
