Abstract

In this paper, we present the most recent results obtained during the Alfven Wave Heating experiments being carried out on the TCA Tokamak. We have obtained both significant electron heating and some ion heating using rf powers up to 230 kW, greater than the value of the ohmic heating power in the target plasma. Firstly, we shall describe the AWH method as applied to TCA and then briefly cover some of the low power experiments carried out during the last year. The higher power experiments will then be discussed, along with some of the problems we have encountered.
