Global transport phenomena in magnetized plasmas are studied by using large sale supercomputer simulations. Global full-f gyrokinetic simulation based on the first principle is used to explore the transport physics in heliotron/stellarator plasmas, which have complicated three-dimensional magnetic field structures. Simulation results are qualitatively/quantitatively compared to experiments to clarify and understand the underlying physics of the plasma transport, which enables us to predict/assess the performance of the plasma confinement in future devices.
