A model to describe an ion-electron-beam fluid equilibrium state is presented. The effect of the centrifugal force of beam ions on the plasma pressure profile is considered. From the toroidal force balance, it is possible to calculate the temperature and density for both ions and electrons. A preliminary calculation result of the plasma pressure profile in the three-fluid system is presented.
