Canonical Profiles Transport Model for H-mode Shots in Tokamaks

The Canonical Profiles Transport Model (CPTM), which includes both the heat and particle transport equations, is used to simulate core and pedestal plasma for JET, and MAST H-mode shots. Simulations show reasonable agreement with experiment for both ELMy and ELM-free shots. RMS deviations of calculated results from the experimental ones are on the level 10-12% in main. The calculated ion and electron temperatures are very insensitive to the change of the deposited power profiles. The calculated pedestal temperature rapidly increases with plasma current; density profile peaking increases at low collisionalities.
