Measurement of the open loop plasma equilibrium response in TCV
This article presents a technique and results for the estimation of the open loop frequency response of the plasma on tokamak à configuration variable (TCV). The results are compared with the CREATE-L model and confirm the previous good agreement with closed loop data. A simpler model has also been developed in order to understand the reasons for the good agreement and identify which plasma properties are important in determining the response. An alternative modelling method combines features of both the theoretical and experimental techniques. Its advantage is that it incorporates well defined knowledge of the electromagnetic properties of the tokamak with experimental data to derive plasma related parameters.
