Electron cyclotron wave (ECW) on TCV: the ECW system and its operation
Heating of the tokamak TCV (tokamak á configuration variable) is performed using electron cyclotron wave (ECW) at the second harmonic, extraordinary mode (power = 3 MW, frequency = 82.7 GHz) and at the third harmonic extraordinary mode (power = 1.5 MW, frequency = 118 GHz). The power is generated by 9 gyrotrons and transmitted to the tokamak through evacuated corrugated transmission line. Reliable operation at 1 MW power in a pulse up to 1 s was achieved.
