Discharge supervision control on ASDEX Upgrade
The axially symmetric divertor experiment (ASDEX) Upgrade's digital systems for plant operation and realtime discharge control are described. Experience gained during development and operation is used to derive the structure of a reference discharge control system that serves as a target system to assess the impact of enhancements in the existing system. Within this context, the extension of supervision control from technical synchronization of dedicated controllers to physics-oriented coordination is discussed, and examples of technical and physical applications are shown.
