Divertors are required to remove the impurities such as helium ashes in a magnetic conferment-type fusion reactor. Detached plasma is one of the major systems to suppress the heat load from a core plasma. The electron temperature and density have been measured with the linear divertor simulation device TPDsheet IV. To model the ion density, a zero-dimensional model has been developed for solving the system of rate balance equations. We have confirmed the characteristic of ion density on gas
