Samenvatting

On recent years TOPICA[1] has shown its capabilities as a designing tool for ICRF antennas on tokamaks, handling both the realistic geometrical detail of the structure as well as a complete description of the plasma region behavior. Now, expanding these capabilities, the TOrino Polythecnic CYLindrical code (TOPCYL) has been added in order to simulate antennas facing cylindrical plasma columns. This feature allows the analysis and design of RF heating systems for applications as VASIMR-like plasma thrusters and plasma-surface-interaction (PSI) experiments. In the present work, the theoretical basis and implementation of TOPCYL is presented, as well as the results obtained on simulating antennas for the ICRF and 2,45 GHz regimes.
