Stabilization of the resitive wall mode (RWM) may allow fusion power to be doubled for a given magnetic field in advanced tokamak operation. Experimental evidence from DIII-D and other machines suggests that plasma rotation can stabilize the RWM. Several authors (Finn 1995 Phys. Plasmas 2 3782, Bondeson Xie 1997 Phys. Plasmas 4 2081) have construct…

The possibility of stabilizing ideal magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) instabilities by resistive walls and slow plasma rotation (rotation frequencies comparable to resistive tearing growth rates) was proposed recently by Finn [Phys. Plasmas 2 , 3782 (1995)] on the basis of cylindrical theory. In the present paper we analyze toroidal effects (pressure gr…

RF heating and current drive with ion cyclotron waves and Lower Hybrid waves have been crucial for the development of the Optimized Shear scenario on JET to high performance. Peaked electron temperature profiles and improved energy confinement could be obtained with electron heating both from LHCD and ICRH during plasma current ramp up. ICRH and NB…
