Short Description

Runs the TGLF code


Reduced gyrokinetic turbulence, transport model

Long Description

The TGLF code is a transport model that predicts particle, energy, and momentum flows based on local parameters (collisionalities, gradients, etc.).

Typical workflows

This module is useful for * running TGLF based on an existing TGLF input file * scanning 1 or 2 parameters simultaneously to probe turbulent mode characteristics * performing uncertainty quantification

Supported devices

  • Device independent
