 Abstract: The constraints of divertor operation have been applied to ITER core plasma simulations by imposing boundary conditions on the calculation, implemented as a set of scaling relations derived from B2-Eirene modelling which describe the effect of the divertor. The core plasma simulations use the integrated core pedestal sol (ICPS) model, based on ITG transport for ions and RLW-like transport for electrons, which includes an increase of transport when the ballooning limit is attained in order to simulate the effect of ELMs in a time-averaged fashion. At the nominal average core density for ITER with the ICPS transport model stationary operation with a fusion power multiplier Q of 12–16 is obtained and a reasonable operating range exists for realistic pumping speeds and particle throughput at a peak divertor power load controlled to remain below 10 MW m⁻². Fuelling of the plasma must be predominantly direct core fuelling, and the resulting required core-fuelling rates are realistic. Increased pumping speed and particle throughput are beneficial for maximizing Q. The relaxation to these stationary conditions is very slow, and transient values of fusion multiplier are appreciably higher.
