Evidence cross-validation and Bayesian inference of MAST plasma equilibria

von Nessi, G. T.; Hole, M. J.; Svensson, J.; Appel, L.


In this paper, current profiles for plasma discharges on the Mega-Ampere Spherical Tokamak (MAST) are directly calculated from pickup coil, flux loop and Motional-Stark Effect (MSE) observations via methods based in the statistical theory of Bayesian analysis. By representing toroidal plasma current as a series of axisymmetric current beams with rectangular cross-section and inferring the current for each one of these beams, flux-surface geometry and q-profiles are subsequently calculated...[Show more]
