|Abstract:||This paper presents the features and the performance of the Joint European Torus (JET) plasma response models based on an upgraded version of the CREATE-L code. It takes into account a number of aspects, including an equivalent axisymmetric model of the iron core and the eddy currents induced in the passive structures. The input quantities are the poloidal field circuit currents (or voltages) and two parameters related to the plasma current density profile. The output quantities include the signals provided by the magnetic diagnostic system of JET (fields, fluxes and flux differences) as well as plasma current and shape. The equivalent axisymmetric model of JET and the plasma response models have been assessed on a set of JET pulses, by comparing the simulated open loop response of the magnetic measurements and the plasma shape to the experimental measurements. The electromagnetic analysis shows that the axisymmetric model of the iron is satisfactory. The linearized plasma response model provides a reliable base for the design and the assessment of a new current, shape and position control system in JET, and accurately predicts the growth rate of the vertical instability of an elongated JET plasma.|
