- The Field Reversed Confipation (FRC) is attractive for the design of a magnetic fusion reactor because of its intrinsically high plasma beta, natural divertor, and engineering simplicity. The lifetime of FRCs produced by the conventional field reversed theta pinch (FRTP) method is restricted to only hundreds of microseconds due to resistive flux losses. Rotating Magnetic Field (RMF) offers a promising tool for toroidal current drive in FRCs and maintaining the configurations in steady state.
