Abstract
The effect of the inductive electric field of a tokamak on the parallel (an d poloidal) ion flow in the banana regime is evaluated. It is demonstrated that the flow is in the direction of the parallel current and is surprising ly large-comparable to the usual banana regime ion temperature gradient dri ve.
