A class of semiempirical transport models is proposed for testing against confinement data from tokamaks and for use in operations planning and machine design. A reference model is proposed to be compatible with published confinement data. Theoretical considerations are used to express the anomalous transport coefficients in terms of appropriate dimensionless parameters. The reference model is applied to heating of an advanced tokamak experiment.
