Magnum-psi is a linear device to be constructed at the FOM-Rijnhuizen institute and designed to produce plasmas allowing the study of plasma-surface interaction processes relevant to the ITER divertor. The plasma cross-section will be about 100 cm2, the plasma density around 1020 m-3 and the temperature around 3eV. The plasma will be confined by a strong magnetic field (up to 3T). In order to reach the adequate temperature and power flux, it is foreseen to heat the plasma with radio-frequency power, typically at the level of 100kW. In this paper, we investigate which heating system would match the requirements of the experiment.
