Abstract For the experimental conditions in the ELMO Bumpy Torus (EBT), it appears that the electron distribution function may not be a single-temperature Maxwellian. Neoclassical transport coefficients have been developed for the nonresonant electron species in a bumpy torus with the assumption that the lowest-order distribution function is the sum of l different Maxwellians. These show that there can be significant coupling between the different electron species. For comparison, the diffusion coefficients are contrasted to single-temperature diffusion coefficients.
