    GTC-NEO was also used to determine the bootstrap current profiles for the same shots as used in the ion thermal conductivity study. A number of classic models for the bootstrap current are used to produce profiles to compare to the more rigorous GTC-NEO results to validate them for NSTX H-mode plasmas. None of the models are found to be in great agreement with the GTC-NEO result due to their lack of inclusion of finite orbit effects, though trends in their performance match predictions made about their accuracy within the limits of the appropriate plasma parameters for collisionality and magnetic geometry.
