Thermal deposition analysis during disruptions on DIII-D using infrared scanners
The DIII-D tokamak generates plasma discharges with currents up to 3 MA and auxiliary input power up to 20 MW from neutral beams and 4 MW from radio frequency systems. In a disruption, a rapid loss of the plasma current and internal thermal energy occurs and the energy is deposited onto the torus graphite wall. Quantifying the spatial and temporal characteristics of the heat deposition is important for engineering and physics-related issues, particularly for designing future machines such asdoi:10.2172/459430 fatcat:pqxcxogonzdvbhj2imsrdtmvgu
