Abstract

The scaling of the optimum beta with current, in various elongated cross-section Tokamaks (elongation 2.5), is compared with a number of well-known scaling laws given in the literature. In particular, the effects of triangular and rectangular deformations (D and racetrack shapes) and of indentation of the poloidal cross-section are considered. Significant deviations from the known scaling laws are found and these are discussed with a view to constructing a configuration with the most favourable scaling.
