Abstract

Analysis of a wide range of experimental results in plasma magnetic confinement investigations shows that in most cases, plasmas are self-organized. In the tokamak case, it is realized in the self-consistent pressure profile, which permits the tokamak plasma to be macroscopically MHD stable. Existing experimental data permit suggesting a hypothesis about the mechanism of pressure profile regulation and to give an explanation of such unusual phenomena as a nonlocal character of transport coefficients, enhanced speed of heat/cold pulse propagation and many modes of tokamak operation.
