An accurate method to estimate the tearing mode stability parameters, i.e. the classical stability index (Δ') and the critical width for pressure flattening (w_c), has been developed based on electron cyclotron emission imaging (ECEI) diagnostic in the KSTAR. The measured ECE images of tearing modes are compared with synthetic images reconstructed from the tearing mode T_e model for the estimation. A good agreement between the measurement and model has been obtained, and an accuracy of the estimation result is improved with the 2-D high-resolution ECE images contrast to the 1-D data result. The observed tearing mode is found to be classically stable (r_s Δ'=-1.633±1.265) but have a non-negligible neoclassical drive from the bootstrap current loss (w_c/w ∼0.2).
