Magnetohydrodynamic stability analyses of tokamak edge plasmas

s of publications 1-5: 1. An ELMy ASDEX Upgrade plasma equilibrium is reconstructed taking into account the bootstrap current. The peeling mode stability of the equilibrium is numerically analysed using the GATO [1] code, and it is found that the bootstrap current can drive the plasma peeling mode unstable. A high-n ballooning mode stability analysis of the… CONTINUE READING
