Abstract

This document is a user manual for the iterative computation of three-dimensional ideal MHD equilibria and their magnetic field structures. The computations a carried out with a system of numerical codes consisting of VACFIELD, GOURDON, DESCUR, VMEC/NEMEC, COTRANS and MFBE codes. Their use is described in detail. Example calculations are documented for a possible configuration of the W7-X stellarator, and some useful advice is given.
