A modern plasma controller tested on the TCV tokamak
A high-order, multivariable, modern plasma controller has been designed using H-infinity optimal control techniques and tested oil the Tokamak Configuration Variable (TCV) tokamak. An initial design for the control of the plasma current, position, and shape parameters is described. The design process was based on the CREATE-L linearized model of TCV, and the controller was implemented oil a digital processor. The results demonstrated that the required performance was delivered and the controller response was in good agreement with predictions using the model.
