Comparative Transport Analysis of JET and JT-60U Discharges

Predictive simulations for electron and ion temperatures have been carried out for JET and JT-60U plasmas in order to determine the most appropriate models to this type of plasmas. To carry out this programme, the integrated modelling codes CRONOS and TOPICS-IB are used. Results show that the H-modes are usually well simulated for both devices, whereas for the advanced regimes, as the hybrid, there are clear deviations from experimental data, mainly for JT-60U. The reasons for such discrepancies are analysed.
