Magnetic nuclear fusion devices are a promising candidate for the confinement of thermonuclear plasmas but various instabilities set important limits on their operation. Peeling-ballooning perturbations, which can be described appropriately using high-n linear ideal MHD stability theory, are two of them, where high-n indicates that the perturbations are localized along the magnetic field lines [1]. A new numerical code, called PB3D (Peeling Ballooning in 3D) was written to investigate the… CONTINUE READING
