Abstract

Control of the m = 2, n = 1, magnetohydrodynamic mode in an ohmically heated plasma by localized electron cyclotron heating is studied systematically in the WT-3 tokamak. It is found that both m = 2 and m = 2 modes can be simultaneously suppressed by electron cyclotron heating near the q = 1 surface as well as the q = 2 surface, where q is the safety factor.
