HT-7 ASIPP Abstract It is well accepted that LHCD(lower hybrid current drive) is the most efficient method for non-inductive current drive in fusion devices and the effect of the current drive is dependent on not only microwave power but also its grill phase shift. This paper presents a new kind of feedback control system for antenna phase difference on LHCD experiments. In this high- speed control system, a lot of new technologies and methods are applied. The experiments results show a very good agreement with the design ones.
HT-7 ASIPP Introduce LHW in Tokamak is one of the most important ways to realize the steady state nuclear fusion. The current drive efficiency depends on plasma density, toroidal magnetic field and launched LHW power coupling spectrum. With various antenna phase differences at each waveguide, the power coupling spectrums are diverse.

HT-7 ASIPP PDAC system Fig. 1 PDAC System Hardware Frame Multi-junction Grill Antenna:3 row*4column, phase controlled Klystron: KU-2.45,Made in Russia, 100KW Phase shifter: 360 deg, 2.8 deg step Phase Discriminator: parallel, response time 15us Computer : with 2 cards installed ADC card: 1MHZ DO card HARDWARE:
HT-7 ASIPP PDAC system Step 1: Preparing work(to adjust the parameters) Waiting for the trigger signal Determine control Arithmetic Step 2( loop time 300us ): Sampling the phase data Analyzing with Deviation-adjust algorithm Generating control signal through DO card for phase shifter Step 3: Managing and compressing the data To get ready for the transfer to DCS SOFTWARE:
HT-7 ASIPP PDAC system Three-Stage Phase Adjustment: LHW can play different roles in different stages of one shot with different power spectrum N// peak, such as LH heating and LHCD. And it is what the development of HT-7 physics experiments requires.
HT-7 ASIPP Database Program Database Server: Windows 2000 OS, PENTIUM 4 and 256M RAM Data : Some data with a LZO compressing format contains the represent time, data points and raw measured values. Other are stored with a given database format. GUI program C-S: Client-Server mode, detailed information B-S: Browser-Server mode, through IE and Netscape
HT-7 ASIPP DCS DCS is a bridge between PDAC and Database program. DCS contains two networks: control network and common network. PDAC system is separated safely from the dangers such as viruses and hack attacks.
HT-7 ASIPP Arithmetic of Phase Difference Control in Real Time Fig. 3 Principium to Measure the Phase Background
HT-7 ASIPP Arithmetic of Phase Difference Control in Real Time Lets assumeθ 1 =θ 2 = …… =θ 11 =θ 12, (1) then the phase at the left of the bi_directional equals (α i -Φ i ) (2) and the phase at the mixing port equals (α i - i + δ i + γ i ). (3) So the phase we should shift is given by (4) ~ (6) α i – i +δ i +γ i (α 12 – 12 +δ 12 +γ 12 )=β i (4) α ibackground = i 12 δ i δ 12 γ i γ 12 =Δ i - δ i - γ i (5) α ishift =α ipreset - α i -α 12 (6) α ishift = α ipreset -β i - α ibackground (7)
