The Plasma Shape and Current Control System of JET
This paper provides the basis of the theoretical design and the discussion of the experimental results of the JET Plasma Shape and Current Control system. A method for plasma shape control has been implemented in closed loop for the first time on JET with good results, allowing the control of critical plasma-wall distances or key shape parameters like the strike point position. The method illustrated results in a simple control algorithm experimentally proven to be versatile and robust enough to cope with different plasma configurations and the operational requirements of JET. The system in its present implementation provides the basis for the experimentation of other controllers to check the suitability of more sophisticated control methods indicated at present for ITER.
