Neutral-beam current drive in tokamaks

1987 AIP Conference Proceedings  
The theory of neutral-beam current drive in tokamaks is reviewed. Experiments are discussed where neutral beams have been used to drive current directly and also indirectly through neoclassical effects. Application of the theory to an experimental test reactor is described. It is shown that neutral beams formec from negative ions accelerated to 500-700 keV are needed for this device.
