Hole, Matthew; Akers, R.J.; Appel, Lynton C; Buttery, R.J.; Brickley, C.; Conway, N.J.; Gryaznevich, M.; Hender, T.C.; Kwon, O.J.; Valovic, M.; Medvedev, S.; Patel, A.; Saarelma, S.; Taylor, D.; Wilson, H.R.


In this work three techniques that refine the magnetic reconstruction of the mega-ampere spherical tokamak (MAST) equilibrium are detailed: kinetic reconstruction, in which the thermal pressure profile is fitted to thermal electron and ion data; bootstrap (BS) reconstruction, in which the edge current profile is modified to be self-consistent with the BS fraction (in the limit that edge current is BS dominated); and fast-particle reconstruction, in which an effective fast-ion pressure component...[Show more]
