Plasma physics operations began on the 20/4/90 on the FTU Tokamak. The plasma had a plasma current Ip = 0.75 MA for about a second. The experimental phase lasted until 7/7/94, when a long shut-down began for installing the toroidal limits. In these 4 years of operations, plasma experiments have been successfully carried out (eg experiments of single and multiple pellet injections; full current drive of 300 KA plasma current was obtained by using waves at the frequency of the Lower Hybrid; ohmic analysis of different materials of plasma facing element (from low Z silicon to high Z tungsten)). In this work a statistical analysis of the full period of operation is presented, and a comparison with the statistical data from other Tokamaks is attempted.
