4 Abstract A theory for localized low-frequency ideal MHD modes in axisymmetric toroidal systems is generalized to take into account both toroidal and poloidal equilibrium plasma ows. The general set of equations describing the coupling of shear Alfv en and slow (sound modes and dening the continuous spectrum of rotating plasmas in axisymmetric toroidal systems is derived. The equations are applied to study the continuous spectra in large aspect ratio tokamaks. The unstable continuous modes in the case of predominantly poloidal plasma rotation with the angular velocity exceeding the sound frequency are found. Their stabilization by the shear Alfv en coupling eect is studied.

5 Starting Equations A standard set of ideal MHD equations: ( ρ t + v v = p + ( B B, B t p t = (v B, B = 0, ρ t + (ρv = 0, + v p + Γp v = 0. OUR OBJECTIVE: to describe the eect of general (poloidal and toroidal rotation on the continuous MHD spectrum.

6 Axisymmetric Equilibrium Tokamak magnetic eld and plasma velocity: B = F (R, Z ϕ + ψ(r, Z ϕ, v = κ(ψ ρ B + R Ω(ψ ϕ, ( 1 κ ρ F ( 1 κ ρ κωr = I(ψ, κ B R Ω + Γ p ρ Γ 1 ρ = H(ψ, p = S(ψρΓ, ( ψ+r p +F ψ R ψ = R R ( ( F κ ψ κ ψ ρ +ρ κ ψ ρ ψ = 0, R R ( 1 ψ + ψ R R Z. The equilibrium conguration is dened by ve functions, which are constant on the magnetic surfaces: Ω(ψ and κ(ψ describe the stationary plasma velocity eld; I(ψ corresponds to the eective poloidal current; S(ψ the entropy and H(ψ the enthalpy in absence of plasma rotation.

7 General equations set ρ( iω + v v ψ + C ψ,s v s + C ψ, v + C ψ,ρ ρ = P ψ ψ + B Q ψ + (S γ sq s + α sk ψ Q, ρ( iω + v v s + C s,ψ v ψ + C s, v + C s,ρρ = B ψ P + B Q B s + γs ψ Q ψ + K sb Q, α s [ ( ] v ρ iωv + ρv + C,ψ v ψ + C,s v s + C,ρ ρ ρ = B p α sq sb F Q ψ (j B ψ, B = Q ψ ψ + Q s B ψ ψ + Q B, v = v ψ ψ + v s B ψ ψ + v B B. Notations: α s = B / ψ γ s = B B/ ψ K ψ = K ψ K s = K (B ψ/b K 1 B B ( B B S = [ ] B ψ B ψ ψ ψ

8 Generalized Continuum Mode Equation I P / ψ = 0 ξ ψ = (B ψ η B 1 Γp ρ Γp + B [ ( ( ] ρζ ρf B B η B B This implies that ξ/ ψ terms are of the same order as the terms proportional to η and ζ. The normal plasma perturbation, described by ξ, is small compared to plasma perturbations lying on the magnetic surface and described by η and ζ. Therefore, the terms proportional to ξ (but not to ξ/ ψ! can be neglected.

B θ JR ˆω ω + iv Displacement components: ξ = ξ ψ perpendicular to the magnetic surfaces, η = ξ (B ψ perpendicular to the magnetic ψ eld, ζ = ξ B along the equilibrium magnetic eld.

11 Approximation for spectrum analysis Slow rotation M P, M T 1 Large aspect ration r/r 1 Circular magnetic surfaces: ψ = ψ(r : R R 0 + r cos θ, z r sin θ Three mode approximation used: η = η m δ(ψ ψ 0 exp [i(mθ + nφ ωt], ζ = (ζ m 1 e iθ + ζ m+1 e iθ exp [i(mθ + nφ ωt]. In the absence of mode coupling: η m the Alfv en mode, ζ m 1 and ζ m+1 two slow, sound waves.

12 Equilibrium in Large Aspect Ratio Limit: R 0 /a 1 λ ρ and λ F describe the density and poloidal current stream function oscillations on the magnetic surfaces caused by the centrifugal and Coriolis eects: 1 λρ B ρ = ρ R B R, 1 F B F = λ F R B R.

21 Conclusions A theory of low frequency localized, ideal MHD modes in large-aspect ratio tokamaks has been developed to include the eects of both toroidal and poloidal stationary plasma ows. It describes the coupling of the slow (sound branch and the shear Alfve n branch through the curvature, plasma pressure, and rotation eects. The general dispersion relation for continuous spectrum in the case of low-pressure large aspect ratio tokamaks with circular magnetic surfaces has been analytically derived. There are three branches of electrostatic, axisymmetric perturbations and of perturbations located at the rational surface of solution exist: zonal ow, GAM modied by rotation eects and the acoustic mode induced by poloidal rotation. The mode induced by poloidal rotation is unstable when the poloidal rotation is suciently fast. The corresponding instability criterion is derived. Away from the rational surface in the general case of electromagnetic perturbations (m, n 0 the zonal ow mode transforms into the shear Alfv en or into linearly unstable convective cell mode. Stabilization by the shear Alfv en coupling eect is demonstrated.
