We will first review our calculations on the radial electric field at the high-confinement H-mode pedestal in comparison with the actual magnetic fusion experimental measurements. We will then discuss the new pressure balance due to the E × B current, which is induced by the resulting radial electric field, and its impact on the gyrokinetic MHD equations [W. W. Lee and R. B. White, Phys. Plasmas 26, 040701 (2019)] as well as their relationship to the Woltjer/Taylor force-free state.
