    Abstract

    The structure of plasma flows in stellarators is of interest due their possible role in turbulence suppression, impurity transport, bootstrap current, and magnetic field error suppression. The PENTA code1,2 has been developed to provide a self-consistent framework for evaluating radial fluxes of particle/energy, bootstrap current and plasma flows in 3D systems. Also, such a model has applications to the study of flow damping and bootstrap current levels in tokamaks with imperfect symmetry.
