Abstract

The equations are presented that govern the global and local magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability properties of three-dimensional (3D) plasma confinement configurations constrained to have nested magnetic flux surfaces with a non-interacting hot electron species. In the absence of hot particles, the model reduces to the ideal MHD limit. Specific applications presented here concentrate on the ten field period LHD torsatron device and toroidal ripple effects in the JET tokamak within the ideal MHD model.
