Abstract

The results of plasma equilibrium and local stability investigations in 2 and 4 period quasisymmetric stellarators are presented. A near-axis approximation is used for 2-period systems and the 3-dimensional codes VMEC and TERPSICHORE are used for 4 period devices to optimize the configurations.
