Abstract
Plasma heating using fast waves was successfully performed on the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) in the H minority regime in deuterium plasmas at 27MHz and B-o = 2.0 T. With 1.0 MW of ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) power injected at a line-averaged electron density of 4.0 x 10(19) m(-3), the electron temperature increased from 1.0 keV to above 2.0 keV and the loop voltage dropped. An increase in the stored energy by 30 kJ was obtained. The first H-mode plasma of 6.4 s was achieved with a combination of lower hybrid wave and ICRF heating. Density pump-out was observed during L-mode discharges at a high electron density of 4.0 x 10(19) m(-3). In these discharges, re-attachment of the plasma was observed when ICRF power was applied.
