ABSTRACT
Analytic, high-β [β∼O(1)], helical equilibrium solutions are presented for a class of helical axis configurations having large helical aspect ratio, with the helix assumed to be tightly wound. The solutions develop a narrow boundary layer of strongly compressed flux, similar to that previously found in high-β tokamak equilibrium solutions. The boundary layer is associated with a strong localized current which prevents the equilibrium from having zero net current. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
