Abstract

The symmetric ideal magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium equations with flow lead to a nonlinear system of four algebraic equations and one quasilinear partial differential equation. These equations are solved numerically by a continuation method, by a Picard iteration and a finite element approach. The nodal points are redistributed iteratively such that they fall on initially prescribed constant flux surfaces. Different coordinate systems are introduced and applied to a static case. A first application to JET is made.
