000124547 520__ $$aThe  Tokamak `a Configuration Variable  , TCV, addresses scientific questions to improve our  understanding of magnetically confined plasmas and our ability to control them in ITER relevant scenarios,  and explores avenues to improve the plasma performance on the way to a conceptual fusion power plant  that cannot necessarily be investigated in ITER. The unique flexibility of its shaping and control systems  is matched by that of its Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH) and current drive (ECCD) systems. These  include 3 MW from six 82.7 GHz gyrotrons used at the second harmonic in X-mode (X2), and 1.5 MW  from three gyrotrons at 118 GHz (X3). This overview highlights the progress accomplished on TCV during  the 2004–2006 campaigns, focussed on five main themes: 1) particle, energy and momentum transport in  shaped plasmas, investigated over a large range of normalized temperature gradients and including peaked  density profiles measured even in the absence of a Ware pinch or a core particle source; 2) plasma edge  physics, addressing the question of the origin of anomalous cross-field transport in the SOL; 3) H-mode  physics under strong electron heating at reactor relevant beta, e.g. using third harmonic X3 heating  (1.5 MW); 4) ECH and ECCD physics, including phase space fast electron transport and electron Bernstein  wave heating, demonstrated in the O-X-B scheme; 5) physics of improved steady-state tokamak regimes  with internal transport barriers, with or without inductive currents, and with large (over 70%) bootstrap  current fractions, confirming the key role of the current profile in the transition to improved confinement  and the necessity of a negative core magnetic shear for obtaining eITBs.
