To clarify the anomalous transport mechanism of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma, an approach based on electron particle simulation with perturbation fields has been calculated. From our results, the possibility of angular momentum loss was predicted from the electron flow velocity profile time evolution. Also, there was more particle loss (transport) than transport calculations without perturbation fields.
