Description

The experiments on a plasma equilibrium response to externally applied disturbance of the magnetic field of a dipole type have been done on the GDT facility. The disturbance was produced by a pair of the coils installed at the end tank so as it was localized in the expander region. The results were compared with the theoretical predictions based on a hydromagnetic model of plasma equilibrium in the magnetic field treated in a long thin approximation. It was found that the measured displacements of the plasma column from a geometrical axis of the device varies linearly with the current in ... continued below

Description

The experiments on a plasma equilibrium response to externally applied disturbance of the magnetic field of a dipole type have been done on the GDT facility. The disturbance was produced by a pair of the coils installed at the end tank so as it was localized in the expander region. The results were compared with the theoretical predictions based on a hydromagnetic model of plasma equilibrium in the magnetic field treated in a long thin approximation. It was found that the measured displacements of the plasma column from a geometrical axis of the device varies linearly with the current in the disturbing coils at least up to 5cm at the midplane. The data was processed to subtract the displacement measured for zero current that apparently caused by a small disturbance of the magnetic field by soft-iron-made parts of the equipment placed near the device inside the experimental hall and, in part, also by misalignments of the main coils. Theoretically predicted slope of the displacement-field amplitude dependence is to be inversely proportional to a pressure-weighted curvature averaged along the device. The authors believe this allows the use of the data for the measurements of this value. The slopes have been calculated for the GDT parameters under different assumptions on Kp parameter that define an upper limit of integration of the pressure-weighted curvature in the near-end wall region in the expanders.
