Abstract

In this paper we solve numerically the steady state, linearized Fokker-Planck equation with electron-electron collisions included. The Lorentz gas model gives correct for high but overestimated the current by a factor of six. For lower the Lorentz gas model does not give good scaling with s or u-o-. The calculations have been combined with a ray tracing code used to determine the net current drive efficiency for a typical tokamak experiment.
