The reconstruction of the equilibrium of a plasma in a Tokamak is a free boundary problem described by the Grad-Shafranov equation in axisymmetric configuration. The right-hand side of this equation… (More)

A selection of achievements and first physics results are presented of the European Integrated Tokamak Modelling Task Force (EFDA ITM-TF) simulation framework, which aims to provide a standardized… (More)

Abstract. The problem of equilibrium of a plasma in a Tokamak is a free boundary problem described by the Grad-Shafranov equation in axisymmetric configurations. The right hand side of this equation… (More)

A numerical method for the computation of the magnetic flux in the vacuum surrounding the plasma in a Tokamak is investigated. It is based on the formulation of a Cauchy problem which is solved… (More)

Abstract. For solving the non-linear equations governing force-free fields, an iterative methodology based on the splitting of the problem is described. On the basis of this splitting, three families… (More)

HAL is a multi-disciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and… (More)

We describe an algorithm for the reconstruction of the equilibrium in a Tokamak from discrete magnetic measurements. In order to solve this inverse problem we first use toroidal harmonics to compute… (More)

The “European Transport Solver” (ETS) [1,2] is the new modular simulator developed within the EFDA Integrated Tokamak Modelling (ITM) Task Force*. Ultimately, it will allow for the entire discharge… (More)
