Edge transport barrier (ETB) formation and a reheat mode have been simultaneously realized on the Compact Helical System (CHS). The new mode is induced by neutral particle reduction in the edge region, which is caused by shutting off fueling after a strong gas-puffing. When both the reheat mode and the ETB are simultaneously realized, the density reduction is suppressed by the ETB in the peripheral region, and the temperature continues to increase by the reheat mode. This mode provides an enhanced confinement in the high density region (e ∼ 1.2 × 1020mr-3) compared to the ETB formation without the reheat mode, because of a large suppression of an anomalous transport, which is confirmed with fluctuation measurements in the edge region.
