Abstract

An intensive integrated modelling work of the main scenarios of the new Divertor Tokamak Test (DTT) facility with a single null divertor configuration has been performed using first principle quasi-linear transport models, in support of the design of the device and of the definition of its scientific work programme. First results of this integrated modelling work on DTT (R0 = 2.14 m, a = 0.65 m) are presented here along with outcome of the gyrokinetic simulations used to validate the reduced models in the DTT range of parameters. As a result of this work, the heating mix has been defined, the size of device has been increased to R0 = 2.19 m and a = 0.70 m, the use of pellets for fuelling has been recommended and reference profiles for diagnostic design, estimates of neutron yields and fast particle losses have been made available.
