Identifying the impact of rotation, anisotropy, and energetic particle physics in tokamaks

Hole, Matthew; Von Nessi, Gregory; Fitzgerald, Michael; McClements, K.G.; Svensson, Jakob


In this paper we study the effects of poloidal and toroidal rotation, and anisotropy in tokamaks. To resolve these effects from uncertainties in the data, we introduce a Bayesian inference framework which calculates the magnetic configuration probabilistically using motional Stark effect and magnetic data. Drawing on these calculations, we compute the poloidal and toroidal Mach numbers in MAST for a discharge with good rotation data. Our calculations confirm that the poloidal Mach number Ms, =...[Show more]
