Abstract

The current drive (CD) problem in regimes with internal transport barrier (ITB) is addressed using a fast solver of the electron drift kinetic equation which may be used for arbitrary tokamak plasma magnetic equilibrium and any type of electron radio-frequency (RF) wave. Parametric studies are performed for the Lower Hybrid (LH) and Electron Cyclotron (EC) waves.
