We have studied the viewing chord arrangement of the poloidal polarimeter in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). We have optimized the viewing chord arrangement based on the evaluation using a magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium reconstruction code. This reconstruction code has been developed in this study. We have successfully optimized viewing chord arrangements for three equilibria of the ITER operation scenario. The accuracy of the central safety factor within 3% has been achieved in each case. Furthermore, the viewing chord arrangement, which is optimized for the inductive operation scenario II at the start of the burn phase (S2-SOB), has been applied for other equilibria. As the result, the accuracy has not deteriorated drastically compared with the accuracy which is evaluated using the optimized arrangement for each equilibrium. The viewing chord arrangement for S2-SOB is proposed as the most promising candidate of the ITER poloidal polarimeter.
