On steady poloidal and toroidal flows in tokamak plasmas
The effects of poloidal and toroidalflows on tokamakplasma equilibria are examined in the magnetohydrodynamic limit. “Transonic” poloidal flows of the order of the sound speed multiplied by the ratio of poloidal magnetic field to total field B₀/B can cause the (normally elliptic) Grad–Shafranov (GS) equation to become hyperbolic in part of the solution domain. It is pointed out that the range of poloidal flows for which the GS equation is hyperbolic increases with plasma beta and B₀/B, thereby...[Show more]
