Problems:

  • RF tokamak plasma heating in ion cyclotron and lower hybrid frequency range
  • Gaining of maximum beta regimes
  • Transition into enhanced plasma confinement regimes
  • Current drive by RF methods
  • Preionization at UHF in tokamaks.

Technical equipment:

  • RF generator with output power up to 300 kW and pulse duration up to 20 msec at frequencies 8 - 12 MHz (tokamak TUMAN-3)
  • RF generator with output power up to 1000 kW and pulse duration up to 100 msec at frequencies 12 - 50 MHz (spherical tokamak GLOBUS-M)
  • RF generator with output power up to 300 kW and pulse duraton up to 20 msec at frequency 915 MHz (tokamak FT-2)
