Bootstrap current calculations with the SPBSC and the VENUS delta f codes for the Large Helical Device

Total bootstrap current calculations with the updated VENUS+δf code that incorporates energy convolution and the momentum correction technique have been performed for the reference tokamak JT-60U cases and for the experimental Large Helical Device (LHD, NIFS, Japan) configurations with different magnetic axis positions. The VENUS+δf results have been compared with the corresponding tokamak results of the neoclassical bootstrap current models for the general axisymmetric equilibria and arbitrary collisionality regime, as well as with the corresponding 3D SPBSC code numerical predictions and with the LHD experimental tendency.
