A direct method is described for finding optimal coils, and 'flexibility' coils are presented which have been determined by this method. The method proceeds straight to a coil design from the required vacuum magnetic configuration parameters for the desired plasma, rather than producing an intermediate 'surface current' description. This allows engineering requirements to be faithfully reproduced. The method has been applied by implementing a perturbative vacuum rotational transform evaluator...[Show more]
