Abstract [en]

Factors affecting the magnitude of sawtooth crashes in soft x-ray (SXR) signals (I-SXR) have been studied using data from high-Theta (pinch parameter) discharges in the toroidal pinch experiment TPE-1RM20 reversed-field pinch device [Y. Yagi , J. Plasma Fusion Research 69, 700 (1993)]. In TPE-1RM20, discharges with a high Theta that are free of large sawteeth (improved high-Theta mode discharges), spontaneously appeared [Y. Hirano , Nucl. Fusion 36, 721 (1996)] among typical conventional discharges exhibiting large sawtooth crashes. The reason for the spontaneous appearance of sawtooth-free discharges has been unclear. It is shown that the normalized magnitude of the SXR crashes, [Delta(I-SXR)/I-SXR], is well correlated with the m (poloidal mode number)=0 mode amplitude in the postcrash phase. It is also shown that Delta(I-SXR)/I-SXR is smaller when the quasi-single helicity state precedes the crash rather than when the multiple-helicity state precedes the crash, and Delta(I-SXR)/I-SXR is smaller when E-parallel to (the parallel electric field at the plasma surface) is approximately zero in the precrash phase rather than E-parallel to being negative.
