The W<sup>45+</sup> and W<sup>46</sup>+ 3-4d inner shell excitation lines in addition to Mo<sup>32+</sup> 2-3s lines have been identified from the spectrum taken by an upgraded high-resolution x-ray spectrometer. It is found from analysis of the absolute intensities of the W<sup>46+</sup> and Mo<sup>32+</sup> lines that W and Mo concentrations are in the range of 10<sup>-5</sup> and 10<sup>-6</sup>, respectively, with a ratio of 5% in JET with the ITER-like wall configuration for ELMy H-mode plasmas with a plasma current of 2.0-2.5 MA, a toroidal magnetic field of 2.7 T and a neutral beam injection power of 14-18 MW. For the purpose of checking self-consistency, it is confirmed that the W concentration determined from the W<sup>45+</sup> line is in agreement with that from the W<sup>46+</sup> line within 20% and that the plasma effective charge determined from the continuum of the first order reflection spectrum is also in agreement with that from the second order within 50%. Further, the determined plasma effective charge is in agreement with that determined from a visible spectroscopy, confirming that the sensitivity of the x-ray spectrometer is valid and that the W and the Mo concentrations are also likely to be valid.
