Runaway-electron formation and electron slide-away in an ITER post-disruption scenario

11 Oct 2016 Stahl A. Embréus O. Landreman M. Papp G. Fülöp T.

Mitigation of runaway electrons is one of the outstanding issues for the reliable operation of ITER and other large tokamaks, and accurate estimates for the expected runaway-electron energies and current are needed. Previously, linearized tools (which assume the runaway population to be small) have been used to study the runaway dynamics, but these tools are not valid in the cases of most interest, i.e. when the runaway population becomes substantial...
