Computation of 3D MHD equilibria with free boundary and diagnostic coil responses for W7-AS
The VMEC-DIAGNO code package is tested and used to compute MHD equilibria for W7-AS and the corresponding response of magnetic field diagnostic coils to the plasma current. It is suggested how to achieve reasonable accuracy and some comparisons with an existing database are made. A new database is being established and the possibilities of obtaining relevant plasma parameters by analysing the diagnostic signals are discussed.
