Toroidal ripple transport of beam ions in the mega-ampère spherical tokamak

McClements, K. G.; Hole, M. J.


The transport of injected beam ions due to toroidalmagnetic field ripple in the mega-ampère spherical tokamak (MAST) is quantified using a full orbit particle tracking code, with collisional slowing-down and pitch-angle scattering by electrons and bulk ions taken into account. It is shown that the level of ripple losses is generally rather low, although it depends sensitively on the major radius of the outer midplane plasma edge; for typical values of this parameter in MAST plasmas, the...[Show more]
