Measurements of energetic ions, impurity influx, recycling, and Bernstein waves generated in the plasma core are described for ICRF heating in PLT. Such measurements are being used for several launchers in order to optimize rf power deposition and discharge conditions. Preparations are underway to extend operation to higher rf power levels (about 5 MW) for the best attainable PLT conditions to permit more reactor-relevant extrapolations.
