To realize high performance plasmas in tokamak devices, error field correction (EFC) is one of the very important issues. Actually, error field correction coil is being planned in ITER using superconducting coils, while normal copper coils will be employed in JT-60SA. Similar coils are installed and under operation in many devices over the world. In the case of JT-60SA, EFC coils will be realized by 12 (or 18) sector coils installed inside the vacuum vessel. This paper describes a conceptual design study for the circuit configuration and control strategy of the power supply system of these EFC coils. In conclusion, to minimize the number of current feeders and semiconductor power devices, multi-phase inverter is the best solution not only from the cost merit but also from a view point of canceling the induced voltage of axisymmetric magnetic component.
