Abstract: The sustainment of steady-state plasmas in tokamaks requires efficient current drive systems. Lower Hybrid Current Drive (LHCD) is currently the most efficient method to generate a continuous additional off-axis toroidal plasma current as well as reduce the poloidal flux consumption during the plasma current ramp-up phase. The operation of the Tore Supra ITER-like LH launcher has demonstrated the capability to couple LH power at ITER-like power densities with very low reflected power during long pulses.

“…At the contrary of the model proposed in [16] [17] , a larger rectangular input section has been used (WR229 instead of WR187). It was found in [7] a range of dielectric thickness which combines low total dielectric losses (<650W) by minimizing the axial electric field in the ceramic and a low VSWR (S 11 <-25dB). We did not take into account in this study the impact of non-negligible amount of reflected power (>5%), such as experimented on tokamak.…”
