An extended analytic solution to the Grad-Shafranov equation using Solov'ev profiles is presented. The solution describes standard tokamaks, spherical tokamaks, spheromaks, and field reversed configurations. It allows arbitrary aspect ratio, elongation, and triangularity as well as a plasma surface that can be smooth or possess a double or single null divertor X-point. The solution can also be used to evaluate the equilibrium beta limit in a tokamak and spherical tokamak in which a separatrix moves onto the inner surface of the plasma.
