The mission of Tore Supra is the study of long discharges and related problems. In this framework, the most important issues are: (i) active control of the current density profile, test of different current drive scenarios and implications for confinement; (ii) control of particle and heat fluxes, including creation and control of strongly radiating layers at the plasma edge by an ergodic divertor; (iii) investigation of the connection between turbulence and transport, by specific diagnostics of the different types of plasma turbulence. Within this framework, both EC diagnostics and ECRH play or are going to play an important role. The main characteristics of the present ECE, ECA and ECRH systems and of their planned extensions are described, focusing on their applications in the near future.
