The effect of a noncircular shape of the plasma cross section on the ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability of the (m,n)=(1,1) internal kink, or quasi-interchange (QI), mode in toroidal plasmas, where the safety factor q is close to unity in a wide area in the plasma core, is analyzed.

Theory of plasma confinement in tokamaks of noncircular cross section and optimization of the doublet III design. The main result of the Belt Pinch experiments is that MHD-stability requires about the same qcrit-value (≈ 3) also needed in circular-cross-section tokamaks, at least for the present plasma.

In the circular geometry a pronounced elongation of the plasma is found even for moderate equilibrium displacements. STABILITY OF HIGH-β TOKAMAKS WITH ARBITRARY ELONGATED CROSS SECTIONS.

J.A. TATARONIS, W. GROSSMANN and H. Abstract. In this paper, an attempt is made to clarify some general aspects of the Alfvén current drive problem for magnetic traps. For large aspect ratio tokamaks, with an elongated cross-section, some general formulas concerning the untrapped particles dynamics and their input to the Landau damping of the Alfvén waves are by: 2.

In a recent paper, Nakayama, Sato, and Matsuoka [Phys. Stability of tokamaks with elongated cross section book ()] suggested that elliptical cross‐section tokamaks with aspect ratio R/a= and with elongation κ= are unstable to a splitting (m=2, n=0) instability for plasma β>5%, and that κ≥ plasmas are unstable to a splitting for β≥1%.

The magnetohydrodynamic evolution code tsc [J. by: 2. We explore the stability and confinement properties of tokamaks with comet-shaped plasmas which feature oblate cross-sections and negative triangularity.

Such cross-section shaping is expected to reduce the trapping of particles in regions of bad curvature and lead to improved confinement.

Additionally, it can improve stability to Mercier by: 4. To achieve high performance in tokamaks, plasmas with elongated poloidal cross-section are needed. Such elongated plasmas are vertically unstable, hence position control on a fast time scale is.

Advanced Tokamak Stability Theory (Iop Concise Physics) This book describes the advanced stability theories for magnetically confined fusion plasmas, especially in tokamaks.

As the fusion plasma sciences advance, the gap between the textbooks and cutting-edge researches gradually develops. This book 3/5(1). The MHD equations are considered along with the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, linearized equations and the energy principle, toroidal instabilities, high beta tokamaks, nonlinear instability theory, resistive instabilities, and a comparison between theory and experiment.

Description Stability of tokamaks with elongated cross section FB2

The characteristics of the MHD equilibrium are examined, taking into account force balance equations, surface quantities, the. Magnetically confined fusion plasmas such as those generated in tokamaks and stellarators are characterized by a typical shape.

Plasma shaping is the study of the plasma shape in such devices, and is particularly important for next step fusion devices such as shape is conditioning partly the performance of the plasma.

Tokamaks, in particular, are axisymmetric devices, and therefore.
