ESC Abstract

ESC is an easy to use, light-weight and numerically efficient fixed boundary magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equilibrium code, which solves the toroidal Grad-Shafranov equation for the poloidal flux. ESC computes the cylindrical grid coordinates R(s, tau) and Z(s, tau) on flux surfaces s=const and along poloidal rays tau=const, as well as a number of radial profiles.
