Publications Describing Device
COMPASS-C stands for COMPact ASSembly-circular. It was operated at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy from 1989 to 1992. COMPASS was a low-magnetic field, shaped-plasma cross section tokamak. The aim of COMPASS-C was to explore MHD physics in circular-shaped plasmas. COMPASS-C was replaced by COMPASS-D in order to study high beta tokamak design.
