Abstract The passive stability property of the physics phase (PP) operation of the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) device is analyzed. A linearized, rigid-body assumption is used to predict the stability parameter of the proposed passive stabilization structure. The problem is formulated into an eigenvalue problem and the solution predicts the critical stability margin and characteristic growth rate. The proposed stability structure and vacuum vessel (VV) provide 50% margin against Alfven time-scale vertical motion. The growth rate is less than 50 s/sup -1/ for the nominal plasma. The plasma is shown to have low growth rates over a range of plasma internal inductance and poloidal beta.<<ETX>>
