In the singular value decomposition (SVD) process employed in the CCS method, a gap is found in the magnitude of the singular values. The most accurate field results can be obtained if all the singular values smaller than the gap threshold are eliminated, independent of the number of boundary elements on the CCS and the number of sensors as well. With the reduction in the number of boundary elements, the required numbers of field sensors and flux loops are significantly reduced to 110 and 25, respectively, without losing the solution accuracy. They can be further reduced to 58 and 13 respectively if considering the symmetry of the field profile in the LHD. This result suggests the possibility of actual application to the LHD.The Japan Society of Plasma Science and Nuclear Fusion ResearchJournal Articleapplication/pdfhttp://hdl.handle.net/2115/58438https://eprints.lib.hokudai.ac.jp/dspace/bitstream/2115/58438/1/pfr2013_08-1402134.pdf1880-6821Plasma and Fusion Research814021342013-11-15enginfo:doi/10.1585/pfr.8.1402134publisher
