Abstract

A calibrated theory-based tokamak transport model is applied to ITER start-up studies. The reference simulation of basic ITER EDA parameters shows that a self sustained thermonuclear burn can be achieved provided that impurity control makes radiative losses sufficiently small. The ignition probabilities of both ITER EDA and CDA parameters are investigated. These results suggest that a significantly lower auxiliary heating power should heat ITER EDA to ignition.
