An improved confinement state by the formation of an edge transport barrier can be obtained in the compact helical system. A power threshold exists, as is the case for the H-mode in tokamaks. The threshold scales as . These dependences are similar to those in tokamaks. The threshold also depends on magnetic configuration parameters such as the position of the magnetic axis. The absolute value of the threshold is 1-3 times larger than the tokamak H-mode power scaling.
