Radially local approximation of the drift kinetic equation

Sugama, Hideo*; Matsuoka, Seikichi ; Satake, Shinsuke*; Kanno, Ryutaro*

A novel radially local approximation of the drift kinetic equation is presented. The new drift kinetic equation that includes both $$rm E times B$$ and tangential magnetic drift terms is written in the conservative form and it has favorable properties for numerical simulation that any additional terms for particle and energy sources are unnecessary for obtaining stationary solutions under the radially local approximation. These solutions satisfy the intrinsic ambipolarity condition for neoclassical particle fluxes in the presence of quasisymmetry of the magnetic field strength. Also, another radially local drift kinetic equation is presented, from which the positive definiteness of entropy production due to neoclassical transport and Onsager symmetry of neoclassical transport coefficients are derived while it sacrifices the ambipolarity condition for neoclassical particle fluxes in axisymmetric and quasi-symmetric systems.
