@article{Hou2019NumericalSO, title={Numerical study of transition between even and odd toroidal Alfv{\'e}n eigenmodes on EAST}, author={Yawei Hou and Charlson C. Kim and Ping Zhu and Zhihui Zou and Youjun Hu and Xingting Yan and the Nimrod Team}, journal={Physics of Plasmas}, year={2019} }

Linear simulations of toriodal Alfven eigenmodes (TAEs) driven by energetic particles (EPs) on EAST (Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak) are performed using the hybrid-kinetic MHD (HK-MHD) model implemented in NIMROD code. The EAST equilibrium is reconstructed using the EFIT code based on experimental measurement. The "slowing down" distribution is adopted for modeling the equilibrium distribution of the energetic ions from the deuterium neutral beam injection on EAST. The frequency…
