Abstract

The phased-array antenna has been designed for steady-state electron Bernstein wave heating and current drive at 8.2 GHz in the QUEST tokamak. The prototype antenna had rather large side-lobe components. In the new designed antenna the side-lobe components were reduced by modification of the antenna structure. For the steady-state operation, forced water-cooling and thermal stress were analyzed for the antenna component using the HFSS/ePhysics/ANSYS codes.
