Abstract
For ITER-relevant runaway electron studies, such as suppression, mitigation, termination and/or control of runaway beam, obtaining the runaway electrons after the disruption is important. In this paper we report on the first achieved discharges with post-disruptive runaway electron beam, entitled “runaway plateau”, in the COMPASS tokamak. The runaway plateau is produced by massive gas injection of argon. Almost all of the disruptions with runaway electron plateaus occurred during the plasma current ramp-up phase. Comparison between the Ar injection discharges with and without plateau has been done for various parameters. Parametrisation of the discharges shows that COMPASS disruptions fulfill the range of parameters important for the runaway plateau occurrence. These parameters include electron density, electric field, disruption speed, effective safety factor, maximum current quench electric field. In addition to these typical parameters, the plasma current value just before the massive gas injection surprisingly proved to be important.
