OPTIMIZATION OF ANTENNAE FOR ALFVEN WAVE HEATING IN THE TCA TOKAMAK
A one-dimensional cylindrical model including Hall current effects is used to optimize the antenna system for Alfven wave heating in the TCA tokamak. The power absorbed in the plasma is computed as a function of the shape of the antenna, its orientation with respect to the poloidal magnetic field, its radial position as well as its fundamental toroidal wave number.The study reveals several ways of improving the performance of the modular antenna system used in TCA.
