Abstract

During the operation of the TCV tokamak an extremely wide variety of plasma shapes has been controlled with elongation's up to ??= 2.5, beyond the present designs for ITER. Summarizes the operational regime explored by TCV, using a representative sample of discharges. Growth rates for these discharges were estimated using a rigid current displacement model. The Poloidal Field coil voltages required for plasma control, using the slow external coils and the fast internal coils have also been inspected.
