    The electrostatic electron Bernstein wave (EBW) can provide localised on- and off-axis heating and current drive in typically overdense (high-β) spherical tori (ST) where the usual electromagnetic EC modes are cut-off. Hence, the EBW is a candidate for plasma control and stabilisation in such devices. We present here a modelling of EBW heating and current drive in realistic ST conditions, particularly in typical NSTX equilibria and in model equilibria for NHTX and MAST Upgrade. The EBW injection parameters are varied in order to find optimized scenarios and possible ways to control the deposition location and the driven current. It is shown that EBWs can be deposited and efficiently drive current at any radial location.
