Conference Proceeding
The article presents information on NIMROD, an extended magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) code that has been employed for numerous physics studies of fusion plasma, including both innovative confinement concept (ICC) and tokamak plasmas. The subject of disruption mitigation is being actively investigated on a number of tokamaks worldwide. Several features observed in gas jet mitigation experiments can not be explained without including more detailed physics in the NIMROD simulations.

    The article focuses on the role of superconducting tokamak in a nuclear reactor. There are 3 basic conditions required for steady state operation (SSO) of Tokamak, that is, steady state toroidal field, steady state polodial field (PF) for equilibrium and to sustain the plasma current by the...

    All tokamak experiments using ECCD require setting of the beam elliptical polarization for proper coupling to the plasma. This is done either in the matching optics unit (MOU) at the output of the gyrotron, or in a couple of miter bends of the transmission line. Similarly, oblique ECE receivers...
