For a tokamak plasma operating in steady state to achieve fusion reactor status, the toroidal current through the plasma must be sustained by non-inductive means. This paper discusses current drive, presenting both experimental and theoretical results, and the criteria that must be fulfilled for extrapolation to reactor conditions, compared with present performance.
