Examples

  • RFP devices have the same toroidal and poloidal components as a tokamak, but the current flowing through the plasma is much stronger and the direction of the toroidal field within the plasma is reversed.

    Nuclear fusion power

  • For proper confinement, this toroidal field must have superimposed upon it a perpendicular field component (a poloidal field).

    Nuclear fusion power

  • In a tokamak, the toroidal field is created by a series of coils evenly spaced around the torus-shaped reactor, and the poloidal field is created by a strong electric current flowing through the plasma.

    Nuclear fusion power

  • Since the plasma is an electrical conductor, it is possible to heat the plasma by passing a current through it; in fact, the current that generates the poloidal field also heats the plasma.

    Nuclear fusion power

  • * A tokamak has two directions: poloidal and toroidal.
