Abstract

The frequencies of driven global eigenmodes of the Alfvèn wave have been measured on the PETULA Tokamak during experiments on Lower Hybrid Wave Current Drive (LHCD). Small but significant and reproducible shifts in their resonant frequencies were measured, but varied depending on the LHCD r.f. power. Explanations for these frequency changes are discussed.
