We calculated the internal inductance and the poloidal beta in a circular cross section Tokamak using Solov’ev assumption in the solution of Grad–Shafranov equation (GSE). GSE is solved by considering linear source functions and fixed boundary conditions. This solution has the three quantities (plasma current I p , plasma minor radius r p and \( \beta_{p} + l_{i} /2 \) ) that they are as input data. In two different discharges on IR-T1 Tokamak with this solution, we have shown that the internal inductance at a low value is required to extend the duration of Tokamak plasma discharge that it is consistence with other method.
