Vortex confinement is a new and effective method of convective losses suppression in gas-dynamic trap. Low frequency oscillations of radial magnetic field were observed during study of plasma MHD activity. Experimental data confirm the main statements of the vortex confinement theory. We also observed displacement of fast ions turning point. It can be explained by high beta equilibrium effects.
