In this paper, a short review of the work done in the framework of a nation-wide research programme on ‘Models and Methods for Plasma Control in Magnetically Confined Fusion Experiments’ is presented. The broad aim of the overall programme is to develop and propose a new effective and reliable approach to the on-line plasma control for future fusion experiments, starting from the today's theoretical background, validated by experimental evidence from a number of tests performed on existing experiments. The proposed formulation to approach the control problem is a linearized model in terms of suitable state variables and input/output relationships. The basic project has been subdivided into four major areas of investigation: the linearized response plasma model, the three-dimensional electromagnetic model, the identification techniques and finally the plasma control requirements. The most remarkable results, achieved so far in each area above, are presented in the paper.

Abstract

In this paper, a short review of the work done in the framework of a nation-wide research programme on ‘Models and Methods for Plasma Control in Magnetically Confined Fusion Experiments’ is presented. The broad aim of the overall programme is to develop and propose a new effective and reliable approach to the on-line plasma control for future fusion experiments, starting from the today's theoretical background, validated by experimental evidence from a number of tests performed on existing experiments. The proposed formulation to approach the control problem is a linearized model in terms of suitable state variables and input/output relationships. The basic project has been subdivided into four major areas of investigation: the linearized response plasma model, the three-dimensional electromagnetic model, the identification techniques and finally the plasma control requirements. The most remarkable results, achieved so far in each area above, are presented in the paper.
