A low-aspect-ratio torsatron for high-beta toroidal confinement by G. V Sheffield( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new type of torsatron configuration is characterized by: (1) flux-surface symmetry compatible with high-beta optimization of a tokamak-torsatron hybrid, and (2) unentangled coil topology
INDUCTIVE STORAGE SWITCH STUDY( Book )

2 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems encountered when discharging an inductive storage device into a load are discussed in detail. Experiments with a switch using a liquid metal to solid metal contact resulted in electrode erosion which could not be prevented. This led to the exclusive use of liquid electrodes which are self healing. A variety of switch configurations were devised and tested including two types of vertical flow interrupters. Data from these tests which were conducted with both mercury and liquid sodium as the switching medium is presented. (Author)

Burning plasmas by H. P Furth( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The fraction of fusion-reaction energy that is released in energetic charged ions, such as the alpha particles of the D-T reaction, can be thermalized within the reacting plasma and used to maintain its temperature. This mechanism facilitates the achievement of very high energy-multiplication factors Q, but also raises a number of new issues of confinement physics. To ensure satisfactory reaction operation, three areas of energetic-ion interaction need to be addressed: single-ion transport in imperfectly symmetric magnetic fields or turbulent background plasmas; energetic-ion-driven (or stabilized) collective phenomena; and fusion-heat-driven collective phenomena. The first of these topics is already being explored in a number of tokamak experiments, and the second will begin to be addressed in the D-T-burning phase of TFTR and JET. Exploration of the third topic calls for high-Q operation, which is a goal of proposed next-generation plasma-burning projects. Planning for future experiments must take into consideration the full range of plasma-physics and engineering R D areas that need to be addressed on the way to a fusion power demonstration
Magnetic Pumping in Spatially Inhomogeneous Magnetic Fields by H. P Furth( Book )

The PPPL Tokamak Program by H. P Furth( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The economic prospects of the tokamak are reviewed briefly and found to be favorable - if the size of ignited tokamak plasmas can be kept small and appropriate auxiliary systems can be developed. The main objectives of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory tokamak program are: (1) exploration of the physics of high-temperature toroidal confinement, in TFTR; (2) maximization of the tokamak beta value, in PBX; (3) development of reactor-relevant rf techniques, in PLT
Heat Outflow, Particle Outflow, and Impurity Control on the FED by H. P Furth( Book )

Enhancement of confinement in tokamaks by H. P Furth( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A plausible interpretation of the experimental evidence is that energy confinement in tokamaks is governed by two separate considerations: (1) the need for resistive MHD kink-stability, which limits the permissible range of current profiles - and therefore normally also the range of temperature profiles; and (2) the presence of strongly anomalous microscopic energy transport near the plasma edge, which calibrates the amplitude of the global temperature profile, thus determining the energy confinement time tau/sub E/. Correspondingly, there are two main paths towards the enhancement of tokamak confinement: (1) Configurational optimization, to increase the MHD-stable energy content of the plasma core, can evidently be pursued by varying the cross-sectional shape of the plasma and/or finding stable radial profiles with central q-values substantially below unity - but crossing from ''first'' to ''second'' stability within the peak-pressure region would have the greatest ultimate potential. (2) Suppression of edge turbulence, so as to improve the heat insulation in the outer plasma shell, can be pursued by various local stabilizing techniques, such as use of a poloidal divertor. The present confinement model and initial TFTR pellet-injection results suggest that the introduction of a super-high-density region within the plasma core should be particularly valuable for enhancing ntau/subE/. In D-T operation, a centrally peaked plasma pressure profile could possibly lend itself to alpha-particle-driven entry into the second-stability regime
