3 MHD EQUILIBRIUM AND STABILITY MHD Equilibrium requires: p = J x B MHD sets β limit Loss of equilibrium Sources of freeenergy for instability: Magnetic: B /µ o Pressure: nt Three primary limiting β phenomena: Long Wavelength Ideal Modes: n = 0, 1,, 3 Short Wavelength Ideal Modes: n Long Wavelength Resistive Modes: n = 1, Magnetic Reconnection: E + v x B = ηj
4 β LIMITING MODES: LOWn Must deal with long wavelength modes Shift & Tilt: n = 0 and 1 Kink: n = 1 n=0 mode: in tokamaks is solved with wall stabilization & active feedback control n=1 kink mode: limits determined to 10% to 0%. Tokamaks: solutions in hand using plasma rotation & active control. Stellarators: external magnetic field transform may allow sufficiently high beta below kink limit.
5 β LIMITING MODES: HIGHn Must deal with short wavelength ballooning/interchange modes, n Limits well understood and with 10% to 0% accuracy compared with experiments Controlled by plasma shape and magnetic shear profile:
6 β LIMITING MODES: TEARING MODES Must deal with long wavelength resistive tearing modes, n = 1,, Magnetic field line puncture plot showing island structure Tearing Modes: In tokamaks: stabilized by current profile control and active control with local ECH. In stellarators: controlled by tailoring external transform.

8 PRIMARY LIMITING MODE IN MAGNETIC CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS: LOWn Kink Long wavelength global MHD modes driven by pressure & current gradient: Shift & Tilt: n = 0 and 1 Kink: n = 1 Classic Instability: Ideal conducting wall on plasma boundary stabilizes the kink mode by freezing magnetic flux value on wall surface. Resistive conducting wall stabilization fails on magnetic field soakthrough time scale: τ w

11 IDEAL WALL STABILIZES THE KINK MODE Ideal wall traps field in vacuum region and restoring force stabilizes the kink EXTERNAL Kink: Unstable when δw p + δw d v < 0 Note: δw d v > δw v Dispersion Relation: γ  Γ + [δw d vδw v]/k = 0 Critical Wall Distance, d c, where kink stable for d < d c : simple [δw d vδw v]/k parameterization with d: γ  Γ [1 d c /d]/k = 0

16 ROTATION AND DISSIPATION CAN STABILIZE RWM Rotation Doppler shift: γ γ + iω where Ω is plasma rotation. Dissipation represented by friction loss (γ + iω)ν, where form of ν still being actively studied by theory community: (γ + iω)  Γ [1(d c /d) γτ w /(γτ w + 1)] + (γ + iω)ν = 0 (as shown in Chu, et al. Phys. Plasma 1995; consistent with numerical result of Bondeson & Ward, PRL 1994) Cubic Dispersion Relation with three roots: in region where d < d c new slow RWM root can be damped with fast stable kink mode roots tied to rotating plasma with usual ordering: τ w 1 << Ω << v Alfvén /L Why is RWM Slow Root Stabilized? kink energy release < dissipation loss of RWM slowed by wall in flowing plasma

Experimental Ω crit / ω A suggests scaling ε / q why? Is dissipation localized to resonant surfaces, or more global?
