Abstract

As a result of a series of deliberate experiments in a helical device and detailed comparative analysis against the tokamak database, aimed at resolving the role of local magnetic shear and Te/Ti ratio on confinement, it was found that (1) the pronounced effect of magnetic shear, which has hitherto been considered to be ubiquitous and strongly impacts the core transport in the tokamak experiments, is not quite obvious in a helical device without a transport barrier, and (2) the influence of T e/Ti ratio strongly prevails commonly in both the toroidal confinement systems in the improved confinement mode. It is thereby suggested that not only the magnetic shear but also the Te/Ti ratio may carry significance only in plasmas with an already-established improved mode of confinement.
