Hosted by: Ekaterina
Abstract: In the present talk we shall study the global energy transfer for a fusion plasma undergoing a disruption, by the means of first principles and evolutionary MHD equilibrium models. The key role of the conducting structures surrounding the device will be highlighted, giving insight in the time constants which are relevant to the global energy transfer. Reference: N.
