A tokamak fusion reactor is expected to operate in steady state for long periods, preferably for weeks, using efficient, non-inductive current drive. The plasma must be kept free of significant contamination by helium ash and new fuel must be supplied to maintain the burn. In this report some of the problems, particularly those relating to the plasma physics in the discharge, are surveyed.
