Next generation discharge control system for ASDEX upgrade
Based on present achievements in tokamak control and considering requirements for reactor-orientated research, a next generation discharge control system is presented. Decomposition of control functions mapped onto dedicated controllers and diagnostics gives a distributed system integrated with a common real-time network to publish process and reference values. Basic mechanisms for cycle administration, data exchange and process management of the prototype system currently being implemented are shown.
