Explanation of Capacitive Performance of the Plasma in Damavand Tokamak


In this work capacity of tokamak plasma is calculated using modeling of tokamak configuration as toroidal and coaxial capacitor. This value is very important and plays an important role in time- varying regimes in tokamak. For exact simulation of plasma behavior, this amount will be added to circuit equations and transport codes. Since capacitive properties of tokamak cause production of a radial electric field, it deserves our special attention.
