    A drift-magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) fluid model is developed for an isolated, steady-state, helical magnetic island chain, embedded in the pedestal of a large aspect ratio, low-β, circular cross section, H-mode tokamak plasma, to which an externally generated, multiharmonic, static magnetic...

    Focusing attention on the magnetic island formation, we investigate the characteristics of the resistive interchange magnetohydrodynamics instabilities, which would limit a high beta operational regime in helical type fusion reactors. An introduction of a new index, i.e., the ratio of the...

    The spectrogram capability to track the amplitude of signal components is discussed. A study using theoretical signal models shows that significant discrepancies may exist between the evolutions of the amplitude of a nonstationary signal component and of the magnitude of the corresponding...

    Atomic, molecular and surface physics plays an important role in simulations of the edge plasma in present day tokamaks, and in the predictive simulations of new devices. The edge plasma—in this context, the Scrape-Off Layer (SOL), the Private Flux Region (PFR) and core region close to...

    A kinetic formalism has been developed to study the emission of the destabilized ion Bernstein wave by the energetic α particles in the core region of the tokamak, with very peaked radial distribution. The destabilized waves are driven in the central region of the tokamak but are damped by...

  • Stability analysis of internal ideal modes in low-shear tokamaks. Wahlberg, C.; Graves, J. P. // Physics of Plasmas;Nov2007, Vol. 14 Issue 11, p110703 

    The stability of internal, ideal modes in tokamaks with low magnetic shear in the plasma core is analyzed. For equilibria with large aspect ratio, a parabolic pressure profile and a flat q profile in the core, an exact solution of the ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability equations is found....

  • Minimizing the magnetohydrodynamic potential energy for the current hole region in tokamaks. Chu, M. S.; Parks, P. B. // Physics of Plasmas;Oct2004, Vol. 11 Issue 10, p4859 

    The current hole region in the tokamak has been observed to arise naturally during the development of internal transport barriers. The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) potential energy in the current hole region is shown to be determined completely in terms of the displacements at the edge of the...
