Gyrokinetic particle simulation of a field reversed configuration

January 2016 | D. Fulton | Physics of Plasmas | Paper

Gyrokinetic particle simulation of the field-reversed configuration (FRC) has been developed using the gyrokinetic toroidal code (GTC). The magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium is mapped from cylindrical coordinates to Boozer coordinates for the FRC core and scrape-off layer (SOL), respectively.
