Model for humpback relaxation oscillations

An interpretation of non-standard, central MHD events in the TCV tokamak during localized ECRH is presented. It is shown that the non-standard behaviour is a consequence of specific features in the electron temperature profile produced when ECRH power is deposited close to the q = 1 surface and by the advection and mixing of electron thermal energy resulting from a resistive MHD instability.
