The centrally localized alpha heating that allows the attainment of ignition in a toroidal plasma is shown to lead to a consistent plasma pressure profile. Such a profile turns out to depend much more on the achievement of ignition than on the transport assumptions. This feature is observed in a series of dynamic simulations relevant to the Ignitor experiment.
