A time-dependent, zero-dimensional computer model with no adjustable
for magnetically confined plasmas, is described. It predicts
averaged values of plasma density and electron and ion temperatures,
its predictions compare well with volume averaged measurements made
the Wisconsin Levitated Toroidal Octupole. The model is easily
to predict scaling in other devices.
