Short Description

Workflow that allows for automated running of M3D-C1

Keywords

MHD, Stability, Plasma Response, Equilibrium, Linear

Long Description

  • GUI for:
    • Starting calculations from new equilibrium files
      • Selecting new equilibrium files

      • Extending profile data beyond separatrix

    • Restarting calculations from an existing OMFIT M3D-C1 directory

    • Loading and modifying C1input namelist

    • Selecting linear calulations to perform
      • Equilibrium, stability, and 3D response

      • Arbitrary toroidal mode number

      • Single- or two-fluid

    • Post-process results
      • Select result directories (remote directories synced locally)

      • Accepts Python and IDL commands

  • Automated running:
    • Maps input equilibrium to M3D-C1 uniform mesh

    • Computes equilibrium on uniform mesh

    • Creates shape, n_e, T_e, and T_i plots to check for good equilibrium match

    • Adapts mesh to equilibrium

    • Runs selected calculations

Supported devices

  • DIII-D, AUG, KSTAR, EAST
