Abstract

Modelling of the experiments on TEXTOR on tearing mode suppression by electron cyclotron resonance heating and current drive based on the generalized Rutherford equation (GRE) is presented. The comparison between the model and the experimental data provides a satisfactory agreement taking into account the experimental uncertainties. Both the model and the experimental observations confirm that in TEXTOR heating is the dominant suppression mechanism above that of current drive. As a conclusion, these experiments provide a positive benchmark for the stabilizing term in the GRE arising from the localized heating.
