Circuit Equations

Participant : Holger Heumann.

We derived a new formulation to combine the circuit equations due to the poloidal field coil system with free boundary equilibrium calculations. The previous formulations based on a least squares formulation developed for and implemented in CEDRES++, was suffering from numerical instabilities. The new formulation was implemented in FEEQS.M and successfully validated.
