SOLPS-ITER is used to model ASDEX Upgrade L-mode detachment states including the onset of detachment, the fluctuating detachment, and the complete detachment states, considering drifts and mimicking filamentary convective transport with a radial outward velocity in the low field side. The effect of drifts, perpendicular outward convection and core boundary conditions on the numerical solution is presented. The modeling results are validated against experimental data. We find a good agreement of particle flux at the inner target between modeling results and experimental data. On the opposite, at the outer target computations underestimate measured particle flux by a factor of about 2 ∼ 3 in the onset of detachment and the fluctuating detachment states.

Abstract

SOLPS-ITER is used to model ASDEX Upgrade L-mode detachment states including the onset of detachment, the fluctuating detachment, and the complete detachment states, considering drifts and mimicking filamentary convective transport with a radial outward velocity in the low field side. The effect of drifts, perpendicular outward convection and core boundary conditions on the numerical solution is presented. The modeling results are validated against experimental data. We find a good agreement of particle flux at the inner target between modeling results and experimental data. On the opposite, at the outer target computations underestimate measured particle flux by a factor of about 2 ∼ 3 in the onset of detachment and the fluctuating detachment states.
