CURRENT DRIVE BY EC AND LH WAVES IN TORE SUPRA FOR STEADY STATE REACTOR STUDIES
A long term ECRH program in TORE SUPRA for current drive researches is proposed. The aim of the program is twofold, namely, optimization of the rf driven current in TS by an appropriate combination of LH and EC waves and the search of current drive scenarios of relevance for the steady-state reactor. It is shown that under favourable conditions, steady-state operation can be envisioned by rf current drive with a marginally acceptable efficiency, i.e., etam = I/W = (0.5/R(m)n-e (1014)) (A/W).
