The Ohmic heating (OH) plasma currents up to 48 kA with a discharge duration of 65 ms are obtained in the Kyushu University Spherical Tokamak (QUEST) with the help of the electron cyclotron wave (ECW) and cancellation coils. In the first experimental campaign, some results were observed in the plasma current ramp-up phase which initially appeared… CONTINUE READING
