The eXtreme Shape Controller (XSC) has been originally designed to control the plasma shape at JET during the flat-top phase, when the plasma current has a constant value. During the JET 2012 experimental campaigns, the XSC has been used to improve the shape control during the transient phases of plasma current ramp-up and ramp-down. In order to avoid the saturation of the actuators with these transient phases, a current limit avoidance system has been designed and implemented.

Abstract

The eXtreme Shape Controller (XSC) has been originally designed to control the plasma shape at JET during the flat-top phase, when the plasma current has a constant value. During the JET 2012 experimental campaigns, the XSC has been used to improve the shape control during the transient phases of plasma current ramp-up and ramp-down. In order to avoid the saturation of the actuators with these transient phases, a current limit avoidance system has been designed and implemented. This paper presents the experimental results achieved at JET during the 2012 campaigns using the XSC. © 2013 Euratom: EURATOM-ENEA-CREATE/ Universita' di Napoli Federico II; European Atomic Energy Community.
