A neoclassical equilibrium for low-aspect-ratio reversed field pinch (RFP) plasma is reconstructed from initial experimental results of the standard discharge in a low-aspect-ratio RFP device (RELAX). We estimate the magnitude of the bootstrap current, which is a self-induced plasma parallel current, from the reconstructed equilibrium, and illustrate how the bootstrap current depends on plasma parameters.
