    Current distribution across the arc plasma cross-section constructed in a narrow slot between isolating walls and other factors affecting the distribution are considered. Experimental data on current density distribution of the arc moving at subsonic velocity are analyzed. Data available on the mean current density in an arc moving at supersonic velocity and under phase transition conditions on an... View full abstract»

    Three distinct sets of switching requirements have emerged from design optimization studies of large superconducting magnetic energy storage systems, such as the METS system to power the adiabatic plasma compression field in the proposed ¿-pinch SFTR. Extremely low joule loss cryogenic disconnects are required between storage coils in the liquid helium environment to allow charging the coils in s... View full abstract»

    The various experiments carried out with the University of Saskatchewan plasma betatron are reviewed. The apparatus, having a major/minor radius of 19 cm/3 cm, a toroidal magnetic field B¿ ¿ 0.4 T and a heating field E¿ ¿ 12 kV/m, has been operated in different modes ¿ designated as betatron, tokamak and reversed - B¿. The characteristics of the turbulently heated plasma and the physical pro... View full abstract»

    A helical wave launching structure is analyzed to determine the spectrum of Alfvén waves that it can excite. Using an ideal MHD plasma model, the effectiveness of this helical coil for producing Alfvén wave heating in the Proto-Cleo stellarator is investigated. It is found that significant energy absorption should occur. The amount of absorption and the frequency range over which it is greatest ... View full abstract»

  • Light Emission from Atom Beam - Plasma Interactions

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):106 - 109

    A beam of atoms penetrating a plasma can be considered a line source of contaminants. Atoms excited by the plasma electrons yield information about the spatially resolved electron density and temperature. The light intensity as a function of time and position along the beam can be conveniently observed with an optical multichannel analyzer Since the beam atoms are different from the plasma constit...

    A closed-cycle MHD generator topping a steam bottoming plant is analyzed. The combined power plant involves three working fluids in three loops. The MHD loop is investigated more thoroughly since it is the least conventional of the three. Equations are developed to determine the geometric and thermodynamic variables throughout the MHD channel for inlet conditions of mass flow, temperature, pressur... View full abstract»

    The objective of this workshop was to bring U. S. and Indian plasma scientists together for mutually beneficial discussions, and to explore the possibilities of further long-term cooperative programs. Indian plasma science is known for its deep theoretical insight. The U. S. program meshes with this, bringing experimental and computational techniques. As a result of this workshop, the papers produ... View full abstract»
