Abstract

Transport calculations in Tokamak devices model the time evolution of an azimuthal structure of plasma and magnetic field through a sequence of quasi-equilibrium states, taking into account a variety of plasma and energy production and loss processes together with the behaviour of neutrals and impurities. The calculations alternate a 2D elliptic computation of the adiabatic changes in flux surface geometry with a coupled set of 1D parabolic diffusion equations for the entropy generating processes.
