Abstract The electric potential is an essential quantity for the confinement process of tokamak plasmas, with important impact on the performances of fusion reactors. Understanding its evolution in the peripheral region – the part of the plasma interacting with the wall of the device – is of crucial importance, since it governs the boundary conditions for the burning core plasma. The aim of the present paper is to study numerically the evolution of the electric potential in this peripheral… Expand
