Abstract:

We report results of electron cyclotron heating ECH experiments in which 80-kW of microwave power from a 35-GHz gyrotron is injected into a tokamak with large single pass absorption. For 10-ms microwave pulses, incident from the high field side of the torus, the central electron temperature increases from 850 eV to 1250 eV, in agreement with empirical transport code calculations. For the first time in a tokamak, we demonstrate that electron temperature scales linearly with ECH power. Author
