A selfconsistent analysis is discussed to determine the radial electric field and loss cone boundary in torsatron/heliotron plasmas under the influence of nonclassical ion losses. Effects of the loss cone loss, charge exchange loss of fast ions with neutrals, and the bipolar part of anomalous loss are taken into account. Analysis is applied to the NBI heated plasma in the CHS device. Comparison is made between theoretical results and experimental observations. The increased ion particle losses by the orbit loss and charge exchange loss with neutrals make the radial electric field more negative than the value of purely neoclassical calculation. The partition of the injection energy among the shine through, direct orbit loss, charge exchange loss and bulk heating is estimated by using the self-consistent electric field profile.
