  1. 1. Resonant magnetic perturbation effect on the tearing mode dynamics Novel measurements and modeling of magnetic fluctuation induced momentum transport in the reversed-field pinch

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Richard Fridström; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; RFP; reversed-field pinch; tokamak; tearing mode; RMP; fusion; plasma; resonant magnetic perturbation; stochastic; magnetic; field; viscosity; mode; locking; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The tearing mode (TM) is a resistive instability that can arise in magnetically confined plasmas. The TM can be driven unstable by the gradient of the plasma current. When the mode grows it destroys the magnetic field symmetry and reconnects the magnetic field in the form of a so-called magnetic island. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tearing mode dynamics in the presence of resonant magnetic perturbations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Universitetsservice US AB

    Author : Richard Fridström; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tearing mode; plasma; fusion; reversed-field pinch; RFP; magnetic; confinement; resonant; perturbation; magnetohydrodynamics; MHD; EXTRAP T2R; Madison Symmetic Torus; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Magnetically confined fusion (MCF) plasmas are typically subject to several unstable modes. The growth of one mode can limit the plasma energy confinement and might cause a termination of the plasma. Externally applied resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) are used to control and to mitigate some of the unstable modes. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of magnetic perturbations in runaway electron and sawtooth dynamics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Universitetsservice US AB

    Author : Gergely Papp; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; magnetic perturbation; fusion plasma physics; runaway mitigation; sawtooth oscillation; tokamak; runaway electrons;

    Abstract : As the world's fusion energy program is increasingly focused towards burning plasma experiments, it is important to address the remaining theoretical issues. In this thesis we focus on the effect of magnetic perturbations on the radial plasma transport. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of magnetic perturbations in runaway electron and sawtooth dynamics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Universitetsservice US AB

    Author : Gergely Papp; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tokamak; runaway electron; sawtooth oscillation; magnetic perturbation; MHD mode; fusion plasma physics;

    Abstract : Nuclear fusion in tokamaks is a possible future energy production mechanism. Some of the still unsolved problems are connected to the effect of magnetic perturbations on the radial plasma transport. Two such problems are addressed in this thesis. READ MORE
