Fast ion losses during neutral beam injection in Tore Supra
Future neutral beam injection experiments in the Tore Supra tokamak have two characteristics of major importance concerning fast ions confinement: a high toroidal field ripple and a quasi-perpendicular injection angle. A Fokker-Planck calculation of the fast ion losses occurring in such a configuration is presented. The sensitivity of these losses to various plasma parameters is tested and the most favourable heating scenarios determined.
