A general method for calculating the self-induced magnetic force of an axisymmetric toroidal current

  • S. Bobbio (a1) and G. Rubinacci (a1)

Abstract

A method is presented for computing the class of axisymmetric current distributions flowing in a torus whose peripheral surface is a flux surface for the magnetic field produced by the current itself. The method allows the correct calculation of the ‘self-induced’ magnetic forces arising from the interaction between these currents and their own field. The general expression for the self-induced force is given and an approximate formula is presented in the large aspect-ratio limit.
