Strategies: active correction windings current balancing smooth and cautious waveform programming ● MHD Equilibrium control Widens and makes safer the operating range ● Effective Field Mapping of Br system (pseudo-decoupler) - An essential tool (even if not in real time)
R. Cavazzana – RFX-mod programme Workshop – 21 - I - 2009 … ● Control of density and impurities - Machine Operation reduce the need of GDC more useful shots. - Plasma performance reduction of impurities –field error reduction –equilibrium –wall treatments Methods - Characterization the Glow Discharge cleaning and pre-loading. - Start-up optimization (breakdown and reversal) - Field error reduction - Toroidal field symmetrization & m=0 structure modification Challenging and time consuming, but pays …
R. Cavazzana – RFX-mod programme Workshop – 21 - I - 2009 What's left ? A more general "real-time" trigger (pellets, DRE sync, …) Prop. 49/TF3 /Alfier, Manduchi / Thomson scattering systems synchronization on QSH events. A current controller for tokamak operation these may drastically reduce the need of experimental time and provide much clear results. ?
