This report presents the equations that govern the global and local magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability properties of three-dimensional plasma confinement configurations constrained to have nested magnetic flux surfaces with a noninteracting hot electron species. In the absence of hot particles, the model reduces to the ideal MHD limit. Specific applications presented concentrate on the 10 field period LHD torsatron device and toroidal ripple effects in the JET tokamak within the ideal MHD model.
