  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Nonaxisymmetric experimental modal analysis and control of resistive wall MHD in RFPs : System identification and feedback control for the reversed-field pinch

    Author : K Erik J Olofsson; Per Brunsell; Marco Ariola; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Magnetic confinement fusion; Reversed-field pinch; System identification; Magnetohydrodynamics; Modal analysis; Automatic control; Resistive wall modes;

    Abstract : The reversed-field pinch (RFP) is a device for magnetic confinement of fusion plasmas. The main objective of fusion plasma research is to realise cost-effective thermonuclear fusion power plants. The RFP is highly unstable as can be explained by the theory of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Model based approach to resistive wall magnetohydrodynamic instability control : Experimental modeling and optimal control for the reversed-field pinch

    Author : Agung Chris Setiadi; Per Brunsell; Lorenzo Frassinetti; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; magnetohydrodynamic; model based control; reversed-field pinch; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The primary objective of fusion research is to realize a thermonuclear fusion power plant. The main method to confine the hot plasma is by using a magnetic field. The reversed-field pinch is a type of magnetic confinement device which suffers from variety of magnetohy- drodynamic (MHD) instabilities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Resistive Wall Mode Stability and Control in the Reversed Field Pinch

    Author : Dmitriy Yadikin; Per Brunsell; Mikhail Gryaznevich; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resistive wall modes; RWM; active control; feedback; MHD modes; Reversed-Field pinch; RFP; intelligent shell; mode control; Electrophysics; Elektrofysik;

    Abstract : Control of MHD instabilities using a conducting wall together with external magnetic fields is an important route to improved performance and reliability in fusion devices. Active control of MHD modes is of interest for both the Advanced Tokamak and the Reversed Field Pinch (RFP) configurations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical studies of current profile control in the reversed-field pinch

    Abstract : The Reversed-Field Pinch (RFP) is one of the major alternatives for realizing energy production from thermonuclear fusion. Compared to alternative configurations (such as the tokamak and the stellarator) it has some advantages that suggest that an RFP reactor may be more economic. READ MORE
