Workshop on Kinetic Theory in Stellarators, 13th - 15th September 2004, Graz, Austria
You can find a short summary of the activities and collaborations of the plasma physics division in the following booklets:
The aim of this project is the development of a new and fast code for optimizing existing stellarators, based on the existing code for calculating neoclassical transport. The code is able to deal with realistic vacuum fields and the optimization can be done without any restrictions to the complexity of the field.
The simulation could show the amount of possible improvement of existing stellarators when modifying the currents or changing the position and angle of the coils. The proposed tool can find the optimal configuration with respect to neoclassical transport in the long-mean-free-path regime for existing experiments.
Another point is to
show that it is possible to do such an optimization in a shorter time
compared to the time which is needed by procedures, which are currently used
and need an equilibrium solver. Parallelizing the program is the way to make
a cheap cluster of PCs accessible for such a work. Therefore, there is no
need to use expensive super computers for this purpose.
