- Mixed method of operation with input powers of 10 MW to 20-MW results in hotter (..delta..T/sub e/ approx. 30 eV) longer lived spheromaks (approx. 200 ..mu..s longer) than slow mode operation. However, a further increase in driving current is detrimental to the temperature of the spheromak (possibly due to the injection of impurities). In the mixed method, n = 2 oscillations no longer appear during the decay, apparently due to the sustainment of currents in the outer flux surfaces. This sustainment leads to more uniform j/B profiles, which may stabilize the n = 2.
