The effect of plasma triangularity on turbulent transport:modelling TCV experiments by linear and non linear gyrokinetic simulations

The effect of plasma shape on confinement has been experimentally explored in the TCV tokamak revealing that the core electron heat transport is significantly reduced by a negative triangularity configuration, which could indicate a (partial) stabilization of the microinstabilities at play in a conventional positive triangularity configuration.
