Abstract

Axisymmetric, resistive plasma stability and control in the proposed TCV tokamak have been studied with the Tokamak Simulation Code, which models the resistive time scale evolution of a toroidal plasma, including its interaction with the poloidal field coils and the vacuum vessel. Realistic design parameters for the proposed TCV were used to study questions concerning active feedback response times and passive stabilization. It is shown that the plasma can be actively stabilized by power supplies with natural commutation thyristors operating at 100 Hz with 12 pulses.
