Abstract

The radial electric field structure in the fusion reactor having the Torsatron/Heliotron configuration is discussed, taking into account the effects of the orbit loss of alpha -particles. The direct loss of alpha -particles has only a small influence on the profile of the radial electric field. The trapping efficiency of the alpha -particle is also evaluated by using the self-consistent radial electric field.
