High-β equilibria in tokamaks with toroidal flow

Fitzgerald, Michael; Sharapov, Sergei; Hole, Matthew


We extend existing 2-D analytical high-β equilibrium solutions obtained by Cowley et al. [Phys. Fluids B 3, 2066 (1991)] and Hsu et al. [Phys. Plasmas 3, 266 (1996)] to the case of toroidally flowing plasma, assuming ideal magnetohydrodynamics and isothermal magnetic surfaces. Invoking the ordering βq²>>ε² and M²φq²>>ε, we solve the boundary layer problem, re-obtaining the static solution in the zero flow limit. The phenomenon of extreme plasma diamagnetism in the static solution was found to...[Show more]
