Abstract

Recent results on feedback control of the global shape of the current density profile in discharges with lower hybrid current drive (LHCD) on Tore Supra (TS) are presented. The global shape of the current density profile is characterised by its internal inductance l(i), and feedback-controlled through the LH power or the launched LH wave spectrum. Feedback control of the flux on the plasma boundary has allowed for exploration of regimes with partial current drive (constant loop voltage) and full current drive (zero loop voltage).
