Numerical Analysis of JET Discharges with the European Transport Simulator
The "European Transport Simulator" (ETS) is the new modular package for 1-D discharge evolution developed within the EFDA Integrated Tokamak Modelling (ITM) Task Force. It consists of precompiled physics modules combined into a workflow through standardized input/ output data-structures. Ultimately, the ETS will allow for an entire discharge simulation from the start up until the current termination phase, including controllers and sub-systems. The paper presents the current status of the ETS towards this ultimate goal. It discusses the design of the workflow, and presents the first physics applications of the ETS for the analysis of JET tokamak discharges.
