Abstract We present a new formulation for quasilinear velocity space diffusion for ICRF plasmas that considers two different aspects: (1) finite Larmor radius approximation and (2) includes the effect of toroidal geometry and constructs a positive definite form. In the first aspect, the Kennel-Engelmann (K-E) quasilinear diffusion coefficients are successfully approximated in a small Larmor radius limit and implemented for the numerical codes (TORIC-CQL3D). In the second aspect, the quasilinear diffusion is reformulated in a toroidal geometry in order to include the parallel dynamics in the inhomogeneous plasmas and magnetic fields. We use these two quasilinear formulations to simulate ITER plasmas with ICRF injection for minority fundamental heating and Tritium second harmonic cyclotron heating.
