Investigation of current drive possibilities with the present ICRH system in Wendelstein VII-AS
Current drive with ICRH can be investigated easily in a stellarator. For optimal current drive, antenna arrays with good directivity are required. This work estimates the amount of current that could be driven using the present configuration with only two antennae, designed for first heating tests. It is shown that a maximum driven current of 390 A/MW coupled can be expected when using a frequency of 75 MHz and a phasing of pi/2.
