PERFORMANCE OF TEXTOR WITH OHMIC HEATING IN THE PRESENCE OF GRAPHITE LIMITERS
The operational limits of Ohmic heating in TEXTOR with graphite as limiter material have been explored up to plasma currents of 0.5 MA. The results are compared with former experiments using stainless steel as the main limiter material. The parametric dependence of the global energy confinement time tau-E follows the Goldston scaling. The poloidal beta-po1 scales proportional to eta-e/I-p. A saturation effect was observed in the high density regime.
