Physical model of current drive by ac helicity injection


It is shown that the ac helicity injection current drive described by Jensen and Chu and by Bevir and Gray can alternately be deduced from the pseudoelectric field ~<[bold U]-tilde ×[bold B]-tilde>/c produced by oscillating velocity and magnetic field vectors [bold U]-tilde and [bold B]-tilde (here < > denote time average).
