Equilibrium and Stability Properties of a Helias Reactor
Helias configurations are studied at the IPP Garching with respect to their potential as a fusion reactor. In this report we investigate the equilibrium and stability properties of a Helias configuration up to a volume-averaged beta-value of (b) = 5%. For (B) = 1, 2 , 3, 4 and 5% free-boundary equilibrium are computed, and Mercier and resistive interchange criteria, local ballooning modes and global ideal MHD stability are studied using an extensive numerical code system.
