Integrated Modelling of Nitrogen Seeded JET ITER-like Wall Discharges for H-mode and Hybrid Scenarios

In this paper numerical simulations with COREDIV code of JET discharges with ITER-like wall are presented. We concentrate on the JET H-mode and hybrid scenarios with nitrogen seeding and all simulations have been performed with the same transport model and only the discharge input parameters like auxiliary heating Paux, line average plasma density nelin, confinement factor H98, nitrogen input flux GNpuff were changed in the calculations. The separatrix density nesep is an input parameter in our model and has been kept equal to 0.4 0.5elin in the simulations, with the recycling coefficient adjusted accordingly. It has been shown that COREDIV is able to reproduce basic parameters of nitrogen seeded discharges for both H-mode and hybrid scenarios. We have achieved reasonable agreement with global plasma parameters like radiations levels, Zeff and tungsten concentrations and the plasma profiles, including density, temperature and radiation are in very good agreement with experimental data. The agreement of the code results with the experimental data might be even better, if the simulations are further tuned taking into account uncertainties to the sputtering model, separatrix density or SOL transport. Simulations show that the observed Zeff level is defined mostly by the low Z impurity content, Be and N2 in the considered shots. It has been found that the tungsten radiation plays always very important role and can not be mitigated even by strong influx of nitrogen.
