We extend a reduced-dimension stellarator ideal-MHD normal-mode model to include a vacuum region, and describe magnetic fluctuations in the H-1 heliac. We apply the reduced model to a magnetic field configuration with high density and compute the two lowest frequency global Alfvén eigenmodes (GAEs): (m, n) = (4, 5) and (7, 9). The poloidal mode number, predicted frequency and radial attenuation profile are then compared with measurements from a poloidal Mirnov array. Of the two candidates, the...[Show more]
