Neutral beam heating of TEXTOR
The TEXTOR tokamak has been designed for technology orientated research and is extensively used for systematic studies of the plasma adjacent to the limiters and wall and for the application and the development of novel limiters and coatings of surfaces facing the plasma. Carbonisation and boronisation of liner and limiters and the pump limiters ALT I and ALT II are some of the improvements of recent years. It is intended for the TEXTOR programme to have the plasma boundary layer and the loads to the limiters close to the conditions in large devices such as JET, DIII - D, JT60, and TFTR. ICR-heating of TEXTOR increased the loads to the liner and the limiters significantly. The addition of neutral beams of similar power will enlarge the range of parameters further. This paper presents first results of plasma heating in TEXTOR by two neutral beams, each of 1.2 MW power at 47 kV, with co-, counter- or balanced- injection of hydrogen into a deuterium plasma tangentially.
