Optimisation of computational MHD normal-mode analysis in tokamaks
A set of MHD equations, which are optimised for the specific tokamak conditions, is derived and implemented in the new ideal MHD code MISHKA-1. The numerical scheme is based on the Galerkin method (which solves the equations in their weak form) and it allows problems to be solved, such as those described by the non-selfajoint MHD operators. Consequently, the MISHKA-1 code is well suited for extension to non-ideal MHD including drift, neoclassical and other essentially kinetic effects, which are important for the stability of high temperature plasmas.
