Real time control of current and temperature profiles in Tokamak Plasmas
For a fusion reactor to operate economically, confinement of plasma where reactions take place must be as high as possible. Internal transport barriers make it possible to obtain these states by limiting the transport of particles and heat in the plasma. These barriers are characterised by radial pressure and temperature profiles, very raid in the barrier region and that are very sensitive to the current profile in the plasma. The objective of my thesis is to control these profiles in order to stabilise these barriers and, thus, preserve good confinement of plasma in stationary state.
