Numerical model of ion kinetics is considered for the axially symmetrical magnetic trap. Magnetic system of the trap consists of long solenoid and two end coils which constrict magnetic field lines and form so-called magnetic mirrors reflecting charged particles. The trap contains warm Maxwellian plasma and strongly non-Maxwellian high-energy (fast) ions. Steady-state fast ion population supported by the ionization of high-energy neutral atoms injected into the plasma. Physical model is based on the kinetic equation with two-dimensional Fokker–Planck collision operator in the velocity phase space. Regimes of plasma exhaust trough the mirrors are considered taking into account possibility of electrostatic barrier formation. Such regimes essentially differ from gas dynamic exhaust of the warm Maxwellian plasma. Parameters of power balance for the system under consideration are discussed.
