Research in NSTX has been conducted to establish spherical torus plasmas to be used for high ?, auxiliary heated experiments. This device has a major radius R0 = 0.86?m and a midplane halfwidth of 0.7?m. It has been operated with toroidal magnetic field B0 ? 0.3?T and Ip ? 1.0?MA. The evolution of the plasma equilibrium is analysed between discharges with an automated version of the EFIT code. Limiter, double null and lower single null diverted configurations have been sustained for several… Expand
