Abstract

Ion Cyclotron ITER-like structures (ILS) 1) feature an intrinsic resilience to load variations, which may be beneficial in high power operation. In this paper, the relation between the requirements of load resilience and impedance matching is discussed and practical means to preserve at both at the same time are presented. It is shown that in a relatively complex array such as the one of ITER, the active vectorial control of all array currents is needed (and possible) in order to optimize load resilience, array radiation spectrum and impedance matching. In the paper vectorial monitoring techniques and practical algorithms for array control and protection are discussed.
