Abstract

This report supplements a previous paper (1), in which we used a full Fokker-Planck treatment to find the effects of a relativistic resonance condition on ECRH current drive. We tabulate current drive efficiencies for the modes and resonances of interest, in particular for the O-mode at the fundamental resonance which was not treated in (1). The results have been compared with a Lorentz gas model which gives good scaling under certain conditions. A ray tracing study has shown the size of these effects in present day tokamaks.
