Abstract

Abstract This paper describes the installation of the new JET Shape Controller System [M. Garribba, R. Litunovsky, P. Noll, S. Puppin, The new control scheme for the JET plasma position and current control system, in: Proceedings of the 15th SOFE Conference, Massachusetts, 1993, pp. 33–36; F. Sartori, A. Cenedese, Plasma position and current control management at JET, in: Proceedings of the 42nd IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, Maui, 2003] especially focusing on the addition of the Extreme Shape Controller [G. Ambrosino, et al., A new shape controller for extremely shaped plasmas in JET, Fusion Eng. Des. 66–68 (2003) 797–802]. The activity was performed by the JET Operator in co-operation with the ENEA-CREATE design team, and involved both changes in the hardware and system software of JET and tuning of the proposed Extreme Shape Controller (XSC) design to satisfy the practical requirements of tokamak operation. The application of 10 years experience of controller implementation and commissioning combined with a modern and efficient modelling and design methodology has allowed an unprecedented fast and easy commissioning of the new system.
