Abstract

An experimental programme on electron-cyclotron current drive in the Tore Supra tokamak at Cadarache is planned. The target plasma is a Maxwellian bulk with a fast tail generated by lower hybrid waves. The aim of the programme is to achieve flexible radial profile control of the RF driven current and to acquire experimental proof of the electron-cyclotron current drive by relativistic electrons. This paper presents theoretical predictions relevant to the two problems.
