The coil system HS5V10T of Wendelstein 7-X is investigated with respect to its suitability for the attainment of stable, high-l, high-mirror, low-shear, high-beta plasma equilibria. For this purpose the coil currents of the modular coils and the auxiliary coils are varied individually, and a suitable current configuration is iteratively determined with the help of a system of numerical codes that allows to calculate vacuum magnetic fields and to trace field lines (GOURDON code), to determine fixed-boundary (VMEC code) and free boundary equilibria (NEMEC code), to compute the magnetic fields of finite-beta equilibria (MFBE code), to analyse the magnetic field properties (JMC code) and to determine the neoclassical properties (GUIDING CENTRE codes).
