Reinstallation of the COMPASS-D tokamak in IPP ASCR

ELM studies on the COMPASS-D tokamak

The H-mode in COMPASS-D


COMPASS-D, short for COMPact ASSembly D shaped vessel, operated at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy from 1992 to 2000. COMPASS was a flexible tokamak machine that focused on the plasma physics, in particular, MHD studies of D shaped tokamaks. Experimental results from COMPASS contributed to the design of ITER. In 2007, the COMPASS-D was transferred to Prague’s institute of plasma physics Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences
