DIII-D #155196

Description

This H-mode discharge case was part of a study comparing ITER Baseline Scenario (IBS) discharges with neutral beam (NB) heating alone to otherwise identical discharges in which some of the NB power was replaced with electron cyclotron heating (ECH). Two time slices were chosen. The first time slice at 2.20s includes both NBI and ECH. The second time slice at 3.0s and has NBI only.

The major plasma parameters are Bt=1.7T, Ip=1.3MA, \(\kappa\) =1.8, and \(\delta(u,l)\) =(0.35,0.8). The first time slice at 2200ms has 3.3MW of ECH and 2.6MW of NBI. The second time slice has only 3.5MW of NBI.
