Tools for studying the DIII-D plasma control system, planning new controls, and interpreting results
Tools for studying the DIII-D plasma control system, planning new controls, and interpreting results. Some of the scripts in this OMFIT module are intended to interact with output from TokSys simservers.
General control system identification (fit response to command to 1st or 2nd order model)
General control system quality assessment (fit response to target to 1st or 2nd order model, calculate secondary quality metrics)
Radiated power control (submodule): Plan setup of radiated power control and analyze control performance
Detachment control: Plan detachment control and interpret results
Gas command planner: Calculate gas flow vs. command, or command for a desired flow. Also anticipate gas dribble effect for predicting total gas amount in a pulse of specified length.
Tutorial for DIII-D (Google docs, PDF)
PCS documentation is kept on GA’s git server at https://odin.gat.com/epm/d3d
root['documentation']['simserver_help'] for reference information on simservers.
EAST_US and EAST_GA should be maintained to point at the appropriate MDSplus server/mirror for accessing EAST data from the US. As of 20170110, that server is eastdata.gat.com, but if you use the EAST_US pointer, then you shouldn’t have to update if this changes later (the pointer should be updated centrally in OMFIT).
