The divertor/SOL transport of the Local Island Divertor (LID) configuration in the Large Helical Device (LHD) is studied. Since the LID configuration has an inherent three dimensional magnetic structure, the 3D edge transport code, EMC3-EIRENE, is applied in order to elucidate the 3D divertor transport physics. The main observations reported here are: 1. The effective temperature cooling due to the integrated perpendicular energy loss along the long connection length. 2. The significant plasma flow acceleration caused by the upstream source that is attributed to the geometrical significance of the LID configuration. 3. The effect of the flow acceleration on the impurity screening considering a parallel transport along the SOL. (c) 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
