Title: Drift-magnetohydrodynamical model of error-field penetration in tokamak plasmas

Abstract

A previously published magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) model of error-field penetration in tokamak plasmas is extended to take drift-MHD physics into account. In particular, diamagnetic and semicollisional effects are both fully incorporated into the analysis. The new model is used to examine the scaling of the penetration threshold in ohmic tokamak plasmas.
