Abstract

The main objective of this work consists in the application of an appropriate set of Extended Magnetohydrodynamics (ExMHD) nonlinear equations for four continuum fields (poloidal magnetic flux, electron pressure e p , ion flow velocity i v , and ion flow vorticity U ) to study the response of the reconnecting modes in low collisionality regimes to specific inputs of localized external current. New information is gained on the time dependent effects of the external action on the magnetic islands, that is very important to formulate applicable control strategies, and also to help with the interpretation of experimental observations.
