Differential method for the real time measurement of the diamagnetic Beta and internal inductance in Tore Supra
A differential method for real time measurements of the diamagnetic energy and poloidal Beta has been successfully installed on the Tore Supra tokamak. This diagnostic makes use of concentric diamagnetic loops compensated by precise measurements of toroidal current variations. This diamagnetic measurement is now routinely used in the feedback system to control the internal inductance of the Tore Supra plasma using non-inductive current drive generated by lower hybrid waves.
