Coupled oscillation of the radial electric field, the heating power, and the plasma temperature in helical systems is analyzed. This oscillation is caused by the influence of the radial electric field on the direct loss of injected fast ions. The damped oscillations of the radial electric field, temperature and fast-ion loss are predicted. Conditions for the occurrence of the mode and the oscillation frequency are discussed.
