2 Abstract Submitted for the DPP99 Meeting of The American Physical Society Sorting Category: 5.10(Theoretical) Interaction of an External Rotating Magnetic Field with the Plasma Tearing Mode Surrounded by a Resistive Wall 1 S.C. GUO, Consorzio RFX, Padova, Italy, M.S. CHU, General Atomics The effect of an externally rotating magnetic field on the plasma tearing mode surrounded by a resistive wall is studied. A pair of tearing mode evolution equations describing the magnetic energy and angular momentum balance across the magnetic island are used. The model is valid for both the RFP and the tokamak. The pair of equations is solved numerically to determine the equilibrium amplitude and phase of the tearing mode with respect to that of the external magnetic field and the phase stability of the combined system. When the external magnetic field amplitude is large, the tearing mode frequency is locked to that of the external field above minimum amplitude. Dependence of the critical unlocking amplitude and the phase stability on parameters relevant to present day experiments are obtained. In the opposite limit, when the amplitude is small, the external field is not sufficient to lock the tearing mode below a critical amplitude. Dependence of this critical locking amplitude on plasma characteristics and external wall distance is also obtained. Possible utilization of the external rotating field to stabilize the tearing mode is also discussed. 2 1 Supported by EURATOM and U.S. DOE Grant DEAC0395ER The authors acknowledge discussion with R.

4 INTRODUCTION Key (MHD) issues in the operation of fusion devices: * Avoidance of locked mode induced by resistive wall and/or error field. * Active stabilization of low m resistive MHD modes. One of the possible approaches is to externally apply an rotating helical magnetic field, as some experiments have tested (DIIID 1, JET 2, RFX 3...). The problem involves nonlinear interaction of plasma modes with external magnetic perturbation and/or resistive wall. Various theoretical studies have been done on this field. 4 In this work, we derive and solve the tearing mode evolution equations (equilibrium solution), which involve the effects of both resistive wall and rotating external magnetic field. The model equation can be applied to both tokamaks and RFPs

20 SUMMARY AND DISCUSSION A pair of tearing mode evolution equations, which describe the magnetic energy and angular momentum balance across the magnetic island are derived Steady state solutions are obtained numerically: (a) The locking solution (ω p =ω ex ) provides the required ψ ex and φ 0 When the external field is reduced beyond a critical amplitude (unlocked threshold), the locking is lost (b) The unlocking solution (ω p ω ex ) describes how the mode frequency and amplitude are influenced by the external field When the external field is increased beyond a critical amplitude (locking threshold), the tearing mode will then become locked The resistive wall introduces an extra phase shift Discussion: Is it possible to force a transition from ω p L to ω p H by applying a rotating external magnetic field?
