The main purpose of TRIAM-1M (R0 = 0.8 m, a × b = 0.12 m × 0.18 m, B = 8 T) is to study the route towards a high field compact steady state fusion reactor. In the advanced steady state operation programme, a heating mechanism for the high ion temperature mode with an internal transport barrier has been studied, an enhanced current drive mode in an extended (higher power and higher density) operation regime has been obtained, current density profile control experiments using multicurrent drive systems have been performed and the effects of wall recycling, wall pumping and wall saturation on particle control have been investigated.
