Time evolution for a number of triad pairs (as defined in section III A) with different values of q in the network of interacting triads for C = 1 case with νZF = DZF = 10 −3 . A steady state turbulence level is observed, with elevated levels of zonal flows at large scales.

Hasegawa-Wakatani system, commonly used as a toy model of dissipative drift waves in fusion devices is revisited with considerations of phase and amplitude dynamics of its triadic interactions. It is observed that a single resonant triad can saturate via three way phase locking where the phase differences between dominant modes converge to constant...
