Field Error Analyses - The Vacisld code was developed for NCSX to evaluate the effect of field error sources on islands in the plasma. It does so by calculating a field pertubation from a coils file and adding it to the plasma field taken from a VMEC equilibrium. The code has been described in powerpoint presentations found on field error correction with trim coils (see ppt files in this directory). It has been used to design trim coils, perform coil realignment and evaluate the effect of such things as high permeable materials, coil leads and coil fabrication and assembly errors.  In the case of permeable materials, the perturbation field is typically provided by a separate code (ie ANSYS, SPARK, or custom FORTRAN codes) and read into vacisld (see vacisld9r.f)


Note: For the calculations/analysses listed below, backup ANSYS and/or NASTRAN/PATRON Models are available in the native format (will need appropriate ANSYS/NASTRON/PATRON software to open).
