Modeling the effect of anisotropic pressure on tokamak plasmas normal modes and continuum using fluid approaches

Qu, Zhisong; Hole, Matthew; Fitzgerald, Michael


Extending the ideal MHD stability code MISHKA, a new code, MISHKA-A, is developed to study the impact of pressure anisotropy on plasma stability. Based on full anisotropic equilibrium and geometry, the code can provide normal mode analysis with three fluid closure models: the single adiabatic model (SA), the double adiabatic model (CGL) and the incompressible model. A study on the plasma continuous spectrum shows that in low beta, large aspect ratio plasma, the main impact of anisotropy lies in...[Show more]
