Long Description

CALTRANS is a collaboration between LLNL and GA which aimed at combining CORSICA and ONETWO.

The LLNL CORSICA code provides a comprehensive predictive capability for axisymmetric toroidal plasmas. It has been applied successfully to many tokamaks, to the SSPX spheromak, and to the reversed-field pinches MST and RFX. At the heart of CORSICA is a 1.5-D, time-dependent plasma simulation code which solves the Grad-Hogan problem: self-consistent evolution of free-boundary plasma equilibria and internal profiles, including external conductors and magnetic diffusion, with a variety of available transport models.

Typical workflows

This module is used to:

  • Support for execution of any BASIS script

  • Shipts with scripts for:

    • Converting EFIT g-file equilibria to toq and inverse equilibria (which can then be used by GATO module)

    • Find limit stable beta by successive DCON runs

  • Plotting of DCON stability analysis

Supported devices

  • Machine independent
