The relationships between input power, driven current, energy confinement, temperature and density are examined in detail for existing rotamak experiments. Additionally, the loading resistance presented to the r.f. power supply and the density at which this resistance peaks are calculated (for typical experiments this density corresponds to an optimum operating point since maximum power is coupled to the plasma).
