Abstract

A MODEL OF THE BUILD UP OF CURRENT AND TEMPERATURE OF A PINCH OBEYING THE BENNETT RELATION IS PRESENTED. IT IS A ZERO-DIMENSIONAL TIME-DEPENDENT MODEL, EMPLOYING AN ENERGY EQUATION AND ASSUMING PRESSURE BALANCE. IT DESCRIBES THE INTERACTION OF THE EXTERNAL CIRCUIT WITH THE TOROIDAL PLASMA THROUGH THE TOROIDAL CURRENT, AND ESTIMATES THE DRIVING VOLTAGE REQUIRED FOR AN EXTRAP PINCH. PROGRAMMING THE DISCHARGING CURRENT MAY BE REQUIRED, SO THAT THE PINCH-SEPARATRIX RADIUS RATIO IS MAINTAINED WITHIN STABILITY LIMITS.
