Interpretation of the observed radial electric field inversion in the TUMAN-3M tokamak during MHD activity
2008 (English)In: Nuclear Fusion, ISSN 0029-5515, E-ISSN 1741-4326, Vol. 48, no 7Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A theoretical model for the toroidal rotation spin-up and generation of a positive radial electric field during the stochastization of plasma edge is put forward. Equations for the toroidal velocity and for modification of the core radial electric field have been derived. A detailed comparison of the model results with the radial electric field and plasma potential measurements during MHD activity in the TUMAN-3M tokamak is presented.
