Abstract

The possibility of kinetic Alfv́n wave current drive at the center of tokamaks is proposed. The amount of driven current could be substantial and strongly affect the dynamics of the plasma central region. The relevance of this mechanism to present day and future tokamaks operating in the hybrid regime is discussed.
