Physics Basis and Validation of MMM7.1 Anomalous Transport Module
The Multi-Mode anomalous transport module version 7.1 (MMM7.1), recently installed in the PTRANSP code, is used to compute thermal, particle and toroidal angular momentum transport. In this study, the Weiland component of the theory based MMM7.1 is derived and simulations of DIII-D and JET tokamak discharges are carried out using the PTRANSP predictive integrated modeling code with boundary conditions taken from evolving experimental data. The time evolution of temperature proles predicted using the MMM7.1 transport module are compared with corresponding data from DIII-D and JET tokamak discharges. The discharges simulated include L-mode and H-mode plasmas with co- and counter-rotations.
