TRANSP modelling of neutron emissivity on MAST
2012 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
The aim of this paper is to validate a set of methods to model the measured neutron emission on Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) using TRANSP. Neutrons are measured along a set of collimated lines of sight (LoS) at MAST by a Neutron Camera (NC). The neutron emissivity is modeled with TRANSP  for different plasma discharges using a selfconsistent data set produced by a data preparation and analysis tool. The modeled neutron emissivity is then compared with NC experimental data using a full 3D solid angle calculation to model the transport of neutrons from plasma to detector. A good agreement between the modelled and experimental neutron rate was found.
