Two gas-puffs are used near limiters in the FT-2 tokamak for the purpose of hydrogen refuelling during plasma discharges. This creates toroidal and poloidal asymmetry in particle sources near limiters which has to be considered in modelling. Here, the effect of toroidal asymmetry is simulated using the gyrokinetic code ELMFIRE. Two slightly different toroidal particle sources are used in simulations, and their results are compared with each other, and with experimental measurements to understand the impact of toroidal particle sources on Scrape-off Layer (SOL) physics.
