    Abstract

    The power deposition profiles were analyzed with a multiple ray tracing code for the Electron Bernstein Wave Heating and Current Drive (EBWH/CD) experiments in QUEST. In the EBWH/CD experiments in QUEST, the OXB mode conversion scenario was selected for the plasma current sustainment in the rather low-density case. The algorithm for the wave penetration through evanescent layer beyond a O-mode cutoff position was developed for the multiple-ray analysis. The launching antenna positions were considered to obtain the significant wave absorption in the specific propagating direction for current drive experiments using the developed ray-tracing code.
