  1. 1. Modelling Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating and Fast Wave Current Drive in Tokamaks

    Author : Abdul Hannan; Torbjörn Hellsten; Dirk van Eester; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thermonuclear fusion; Tokamak; DIII-D; JET; ITER; DEMO; ICRF; ICRH; Fast magnetosonic waves; TTMP; ELD; ICRH; Thermonuclear;

    Abstract : Fast magnetosonic waves in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies have the potential to heat plasma and drive current in a thermonuclear fusion reactor. A code, SELFO-light, has been developed to study the physics of ion cyclotron resonantheating and current drive in thermonuclear fusion reactors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pressure driven instabilities in the reversed-field pinch : numerical and theoretical studies

    Author : Ahmed Akram Mirza; Jan Scheffel; Roberto Paccagnella; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion plasma; thermonuclear; Reversed-field pinch; resistive MHD; resistive g modes; thermal conduction; the boundary value theory;

    Abstract : According to classical linearized resistive magnetohydrodynamics theory, pressuredriven modes are unstable in the reversed-field pinch (RFP) due to unfavorable magnetic field line curvature. The result is based on the assumption of an adiabatic energy equation where anisotropic thermal conduction effects are ignored as compared to convection and compression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermonuclear Instabilities and Plasma Edge Transport in Tokamaks

    Author : Tünde Fülöp; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : High-energy ions generated by fusion reactions in a burning fusion plasma may give rise to different types of wave instabilities. The present thesis investigates two types of such instabilities which recently have been observed in fusion experiments: the Toroidal Alfvén Eigenmode (TAE) instability and the magnetoacoustic cyclotron instability (MCI) which is predicted to give rise to ion cyclotron emission (ICE).
