B0 R20 Expression 15 is obtained by expansion of 13 with Here w 0 x, z is the poloidal flux of the equilibrium plasma. That has been confirmed by numerical calculations. Plasmas 22, current Ip, i. For REs, the outermost point drifts faster than the innermost point, i.

This leads to an elongation of the orbit along the radial direction. In particular, an initially circular orbit evolves into an oval shaped one owing to the electron acceleration.

Figures 1 a and 1 b illustrate the evolution of the GC orbit and the out- ward drift velocities vdf Ri , vdf Ro in a tokamak plasma. With the further increase of the RE energy, the orbit crosses the separatrix a homoclinic orbit associated the X-point and hits the wall.

Equation 15 describes not only the outward drift of passing particles but also the inward drift of trapped particles known as the Ware pinch7 see, also Ref. Curve 1 corresponds to vdr Ri , curve 2—to vdr Ro , and It is important to note that the drift of the electron GC curve 3 the right hand axis describes the adiabatic invariant J t normalized to its initial value J 0.

Figure 2 illustrates the evolution of an The drift velocity vdr is proportional to the strength of initially trapped electron orbit into a passing one: at a certain the toroidal electric field Eu and to the inverse of the plasma time, due to its inward drift, the banana orbit turns into a FIG.

The plasma parameters are the same as in Fig.

This article is copyrighted as indicated in the article. We should note that the formation of the separatrix of the GC orbit in the toroidal electric field has first been pre- dicted three decades ago in Ref. This phenomenon has been only recently confirmed by numerical simulations in re- alistic tokamak conditions during plasma disruptions.

This factor is only weekly sensitive to the toroidal magnetic field B0 and plasma current Ip. Numerical calculations the electron energy. Therefore, one expects the outward drift velocity point of a GC orbit shown by curve 2 in Fig.

It describes the outward drift of passing electrons of the electron energy E and at the critical value Ecr, the field as well as the inward drift of trapped electrons. The critical energy Ecr for the creation of the X-point can be 1 J. Wesson, Tokamaks, 3rd ed.

Plasma and Fusion Research

In the intervening period the emphasis has been on preparing the ground for an experimental reactor but there have also been significant advances in our understanding of the plasma behaviour, for example, the wider experience of internal transport barriers, the appreciation of the role of tearing modes driven by neoclassical effects, and insights from turbulence simulations.

Despite the increasing complexity of the subject it is hoped that the book will still prove useful to those entering the subject, to specialists within tokamak research who wish to acquire knowledge of other areas in the subject, and to those outside tokamak research who would like to learn something of the principal concepts, methods, and problems involved.

A further aim is to provide a handbook of equations, formulas, and data which the research worker frequently needs.

I regard it as an honour to have worked with the distinguished physicists who are my co-authors. Their spirit of cooperation has made the endeavour a pleasure. I am grateful to my wife Olive for her support during the time-consuming preparation of the manuscript.


I would like to thank Carol Simmons, Birgitta Croysdale, and Ingrid Farrelly who typed the earlier editions and Lynda Lee who has been unfailingly helpful in the preparation of this edition. I must further thank Stuart Morris who produced most of the figures and Chad Heys who helped with the many new figures required for the present edition.

I am also grateful to Graham O'Connor for his careful reading of the text and for the resulting corrections. Finally, I would like to dedicate this book to my friends and colleagues in the world- wide community of fusion physicists.Qin, X. McArdle, M.

This was as opposed to traditional designs that used magnet windings on the outside. He called the new design Doublet. This process causes fuel to be lost from the reactor, although this process is slow enough that a practical reactor is still well within reach.
