PLASMA STABILIZATION AND HEATING BY INDUCED CURRENTS ALONG A POLOIDAL MAGNETIC FIELD
The stabilizing and heating effects of induced LF poloidal currents in the internal ring device F IV A are studied. Density fluctuations are stabilized already at low power poloidal currents. At higher levels the temperature is increased. The start-up processes seem more efficient than without poloidal currents. Preliminary experiments at lower filling pressures indicate that a more quiescent plasma with higher temperature is produced.
