In this work, we discuss the preliminary analysis of some disruptive plasma discharges in the TCABR tokamak, operating in the high density limit. The Fourier analysis of the MHD activity was greatly facilitated because the magnetic coils inside the TCABR were installed as to take into consideration the toroidal geometry of the system, in a straightforward manner. What we have observed is that the m = 3, 4 and 7 MHD components dominate during almost the whole discharge duration, whereas the m = 2 MHD mode increased substantially just before the occurrence of a major disruption. Also, we could estimate the angular velocity of the magnetic islands, which was observed to increase up to three times just before the major disruption.
