Title: Minimum streaming current requirements for MFTF--revised by recent (r/sub p//a/sub i/) scaling in 2XIIB

Abstract

The minimum warm ion density necessary to effectively stablize the DCLC instability in MFTF represents a significant planning requirement. Thus a review of the theoretical predictions for MFTF stabilization is presented here including the recently revised (a/sub i//r/sub p/) scaling determined from tests with 2XIIB. For the assumptions given the total streaming current requirements range from 1500 to 2800 A, for T/sub e/ predicted from .66 to 1 keV and E/sub i/ approx. 50 keV.
