Abstract
Predictive edge and core simulations of tungsten (W) erosion and transport in JET ITER-like wall plasmas are shown to be consistent with the experimentally inferred W density in the main plasma, within the uncertainty inherited from the measurements of the deuterium plasma conditions and from the W density measurements. The ERO2.0 code is applied to predicting the W erosion and edge transport, whereas JINTRAC predicts W transport from the pedestal top to the core plasma. The studied plasma scenarios range from L-mode to the highest-performance deuterium ELMy H-mode in JET.
