Demonstrate Ip start-up by merging of two ST plasmas, using only outboard PF coils
Rapid formation of high-b ST plasma may be realized by ion heating due to reconnection
Bt = 0.45 T
(REC = 0.6 m)
[Vl = 3 V 4V, 1.7V]
[PF current ramp rate, ramp timing, relative magnitudes]
~ 100 kA of plasma current is expected, if successful
polarities as follows (+ in the direction of Ip):
