Extending the ideal MHD stability code MISHKA, a new code, MISHKA-A, is developed to study the impact of pressure anisotropy on plasma stability. Based on full anisotropic equilibrium and geometry, the code can provide normal mode analysis with three fluid closure models: the single adiabatic model (SA), the double adiabatic model (CGL) and the inc…

A new code, MISHKA-F Flow, has been developed as an extension of the ideal magnetohydrodynamic MHD code MISHKA-1 [Mikhailovskii and et al. , Plasma Phys. Rep. 23 , 844 (1997)] in order to investigate the linear MHD stability of ideal and resistive eigenmodes with respect to the effects of toroidal rotation in tokamaks in general toroidal geometry w…

Present day tokamaks are capable of generating toroidal flows approaching the ion sound speed. Such toroidal rotation is known to have a stabilising effect on resistive wall modes[1]. Here the effects of plasma rotation and diamagnetic drifts on the n = 1 internal kink mode and high n ballooning modes are presented with specific comparison to exper…

Simulations of Joint European Torus (JET) [P. H. Rebut and et al. , Nucl. Fusion 25 , 1011 (1985)] type I high-mode H-mode discharges with edge localized modes ELMs are used to study the effect of isotope mass on the height of the pedestal and the frequency of ELMs. A dynamic model for the H-mode pedestal and ELM cycles is employed in the JETTO int…

Self-consistent simulations of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) [R.Aymar, P. Barabaschi, and Y. Shimomura, Plasma Phys. Controlled Fusion 44, 519 (2002)] have been carried out using the JETTO-integrated modeling code in which theory-motivated models are used for the H-mode pedestal and for the stability conditions that le…

Simulations of three Joint European Torus [P. H. Rebut et al., Nucl. Fusion 25, 1011 (1985)] type I ELMy high-confinement discharges in a power scan are carried out using the JETTO integrated modeling code [M. Erba et al., Plasma Phys. Controlled Fusion 39, 261 (1997)] with predictive core and pedestal models, which include the effect of edge local…

The effects of nonresonating hot ions on the spectrum of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves and instabilities in tokamaks are studied in the limit when the width of the hot ion drift orbits is much larger than the radial scale length of the MHD perturbations. Due to the large magnetic drift velocities the hot ions cannot contribute to the MHD perturb…

The time evolution of edge localized modes ( ELMs ) in the Joint European Torus tokamak [ P. H. Rebut and et al. , Nucl. Fusion 25 , 1011 ( 1985 )] is investigated using the JETTO predictive modeling code [ M. Erba and et al. , Plasma Phys. Controlled Fusion 39 , 261 ( 1997 )] . It is found that both pressure-driven ballooning and current-driven pe…
