  • A detailed study of the bootstrap current dependence upon some plasma profile parameters is performed and the relations between this intrinsic current with plasma equilibrium quantities such as internal plasma inductance, normalized and poloidal beta values, loop voltage and central safety factor are analysed within an equilibrium calculation valid for arbitrary aspect ratio tokamaks. In the equilibrium model, the total plasma current is given by the sum of the diamagnetic, Pfirsch–Schluter and… CONTINUE READING
