In this paper, the pressure behavior is characterized for helical states in the Reversed Field eXperiment-mod plasmas; using the helical coordinates as a reference frame to match data coming from different diagnostics, pressure profile variations have been correlated to magnetic topology changes in plasma. The use of helical frame to integrate diagnostics is also exploited as a tool to identify changes in the electronic heat transport, within a single shot or a reduced shots ensemble, confirming via 1-D and 2-D power balance models the improvement in the plasma performances. © 1973-2012 IEEE.
