Nonlinear bounce-averaged kinetic theory[B. H. Fong and T. S. Hahm, Phys. Plasmas 6, 188 (1999)] is used for magnetically trapped electrons for the purpose of achieving efficient gyrokinetic simulations of Trapped Electron Mode (TEM) dominant microturbulence transport in shaped tokamak plasmas. Bounceaveraged kinetic equations extended to shaped plasma… CONTINUE READING
