Abstract

Beginning with the ideal MHD pressure balance equation, an expression for the average poloidal beta, beta(theta), is derived. A method for unobtrusively measuring the quantities used to evaluate beta(theta) in EXTRAP T1 is described. The results of a series of measurements yielding beta(theta) as a function of externally applied toroidal field are presented.
