15 Modeling of Feedback and Rotation Stabilization of the Resistive Wall Mode in tokamaks IAEA Meeting, Lyon, France, October 14 19, 00 THE LUMPED PARAMETER MODEL AND RFA (M.CHU, IAEA00) For the least stable resistive wall mode and assuming the matrix elements of the energy and dissipation factors are constants, we arrive at a lumped parameter equation the total RWM field at wall external helical current (10) where A is the 'complex amplification factor'. Note that A = 1 in the absence of plasma potential energy with ideal wall d W IW (W) + aiw A = (11) d W (W) + aiw nw potential energy without wall In this equation we see that the dissipation on the wall and the dissipation is the plasma are separated 1. 'No External Coil': homogeneous equation, dissipation in plasma and the resistive wal (1). 'Steady State with External Coil': inhomogeneous equation. dissipation in plasma (13)
