Abstract

The magnitude of geodesic acoustic modes (GAMs) is analyzed, which are driven by the oscillating Reynolds stress force in poloidal direction in the limit cycle oscillation (LCO) of tokamaks near the condition of H-mode transition. Although the frequency of LCO is much lower than the natural frequency, the forced oscillation of GAMs at the LCO frequency is excited. The amplitude of excited GAMs can be similar to that of low frequency zonal flows. The result is compared with the observation of the JFT-2M tokamak.
