A Collaborative National Center for Fusion & Plasma Research

Current Drive for Plasma Via Vertically-Structured Permanent Magnet System.

This invention uses the rotatoin of permanent magnets to generate a plasma current with toroidal fusion confinement devices.  This particular device strategically places two rings of magnets above and below the ferromagnetic core in order to maximize both the efficiency and plasma current.
