In recent years, reversed field pinch (RFP) research has demonstrated great progress which alters conventional RFP concepts and introduced new RFP regime such as current profile control and new MHD mode dynamics. The low-aspect ratio (low-A) RFP configuration may have some advantages to explore these new regimes. After a brief description on the new RFP regimes, we will discuss our research plans in a low-A RFP which is under construction.
