Calculation of the Inductance of Plasma Column at PF-1000 Device with Assumed Current Distribution
Keywords:nuclear fusion, plasma focus, pinch, inductance, diagnostics, Matlab.
AbstractProcessed data is taken from the D-D fusion reaction experiments on PF-1000 at IFPILM Warsaw, operating with 2 MA, 1011 neutron yield, using interferometry, temporal resolved neutron diagnostics, magnetic probe diagnostics and X-ray diagnostics. The inductance is calculated under two different circumstances: with the known distribution function determined by the magnetic probe signal, and with the border of the plasma column determined from interferograms using Matlab. The inductance of the whole column is calculated using the formula for the inductance of a coaxial cylinder.
