Abstract

This report describes the application of the VMEC (Variational Moments Equilibrium Code) and PROCTR (PRedictOr Corrector TRansport code) numerical codes to the W7-AS experiment. The different versions of VMEC, each of which has been used for W7-AS and CHS (National Institute for Fusion Science, Nagoya, Japan), were compared to confirm their reliability and performance, and successfully benchmarked. The PROCTR code set was installed in the Wendelstein-VAX cluster. Its potential in experimental interpretation and theoretical analysis was demonstrated for coordinate inversion based on full 3-D geometry, power balance analysis and time-dependent simulation. The compatibility of the schemes used on W7-AS and CHS was recognised.
