Resistive plasma response to the n = 1 (n is the toroidal mode number) RMP field is systematically investigated for a high-beta hybrid discharge on ASDEX Upgrade. Both linear and quasi-linear response are modelled using the MARS-F and MARS-Q codes, respectively. Linear response computations show a large internal kink response when the plasma centra…

This work presents the first evidence of helical flow in RFX-mod q(a) < 2 tokamak plasmas. The flow pattern is characterized by the presence of convective cells with m = 1 and n = 1 periodicity in the poloidal and toroidal direction, respectively. A similar helical flow deformation has been observed in the same device when operatedfas a Reversed…

The plasma response to the vacuum resonant magnetic perturbation (RMP) fields, produced by the ELM control coils in ASDEX Upgrade experiments, is computationally modelled using the MARS-F/K codes [Liu Y.Q. et al 2000 Phys. Plasmas 7 3681; Liu Y.Q. et al 2008 Phys. Plasmas 15 112503]. A systematic investigation is carried out, considering various pl…
