Turbulence Modelling of JET SOL Plasma

The two dimensional (2d), electrostatic edge-SOL turbulence code ESEL is used to simulate the perpendicular dynamics of transport events in the JET Scrape Off Layer (SOL) and the self consistent development of the SOL profiles at the outboard midplane. The code results are compared to probe measurements of the JET SOL. Qualitative agreement is shown amongst others for profiles, for the magnetic field direction independent part of the parallel flow, and the correlation between parallel and perpendicular velocity fluctuations. The code predict magnetic field independent parallel flows with velocities of 0.2 ion sound speed The prospect of performing similar simulations for ITER is discussed.
