Since tokamak magnetic fusion research has just made a step forward to an international collaborative project ITER, the existing tokamaks including JT-60 are expected to explore more advanced operation scenarios. To test those scenarios in the JT-60 experiment, the basic methods for understanding of plasma equilibrium have been developed. Some of them have been accomplished, and the other are being conducted as follows: (1) A complete plasma shape is precisely reproduced in real time. (2) Eddy current effects are considered for shape reproduction. (3) A plasma current profile in the poloidal cross-section is reproduced in real. (4) For long-pulse DT operation, a method is developed to correct the drifted signal of the integrator for a pick-up coil by employing distant sensor signals. In the symposium, those methods will be explained in detail with the experimental results at JT-60. On the basis of such discussion, we would like to envisage a future of plasma equilibrium control toward ITER and a fusion power plant.
