Abstract: Various ICRH scenarios for ITER-FEAT are evaluated. A wave propagation and damping study confirms the potential of the second harmonic tritium heating scenario for both heating and current drive purposes. The fundamental deuterium heating scheme is dominated by beryllium and alpha particle absorption. Owing to the reduced ITER size, the low frequency current drive window is lost in practice. A 3 He minority greatly enhances the performance. In the early stage of the discharge, the power absorbed by the 3 He i…
