An integrated transport simulation code for helical plasmas, TASK3D, is developed and applied to LHD plasmas. Neoclassical transport in helical plasmas is evaluated by the neutral-network-based neoclassical transport database, DGN/LHD. Five anomalous transport models are included and the estimated temperature profiles with experiments are compared. We also take into account the differential equation for the radial electric field $$E_r$$ into TASK3D. The obtained electron and ion thermal diffusivities with the Alcator, Bohm, and gyro-Bohm models indicate anomalous thermal transport dominates for electrons, while neoclassical thermal transport plays a crucial role for ions. TASK/TX, solving surface-averaged multi-fluid equations, is also applied to the LHD plasma to examine the time evolution of $$E_r$$ and plasma rotation. The transition between the electron and ion roots, and the radial structure of $$E_r$$ has been demonstrated self-consistently.
