The JT-60U torus was disassembled so as to newly install the superconducting tokamak JT-60SA torus. The JT-60U used the deuterium for 18 years, so the disassembly project of the JT-60U was the first disassembly experience of a fusion device with radioactivation in Japan. All disassembly components were stored with recording the data such as dose rate, weight and kind of material, so as to apply the clearance level regulation in future. The lessons learned from the disassembly project indicated that the cutting technologies and storage management of disassembly components were the key factors to conduct the disassembly project in an efficient way. After completing the disassembly project, efforts have been made to analyze the data for characterizing disassembly activities, so as to contribute the estimation of manpower needs and the radioactivation of the disassembly components on other fusion devices.

Disassembly of the JT-60U torus was started in 2009 after 18-years D$$_{2}$$ operations, and was completed in October 2012. The JT-60U torus was featured by the complicated and welded structure against the strong electromagnetic force, and by the radioactivation due to D-D reactions. Since this work is the first experience of disassembling a large radioactive fusion device in Japan, careful disassembly activities have been made. About 13,000 components cut into pieces with measuring the dose rates were removed from the torus hall and stored safely in storage facilities by using a total wokers of 41,000 person-days during 3 years. The total weight of the disassembly components reached up to 5,400 tons. Most of the disassembly components will be treated as non-radioactive ones after the clearance verification under the Japanese regulation in future. The assembly of JT-60SA has started in January 2013 after this disassembly of JT-60U torus.

We have developed a prototype of new mass data acquisition system (P-MDAS) that can perform a faster data acquisition. This system is based on a general-purpose PXI (Compact PCI) bus standard. In 2004, standalone vivifications on the performance of P-MDAS were carried out (8- channel ADC, hard disk streaming). In 2005 and 2006, we examined its performance under the following environments: under remote diagnostic control using optical communication interface, under multiple controller PCs, under multiple PXI boards to increase the number of channels, under a long duration of data acquisition (45 seconds) with a high sampling rate (1 MHz) and a high resolution (14 bit). At the same time, we developed a MDAS server (UNIX WS) and verified its performance on the data transfer to Inter-Shot Processor. We are planning to increase the number of channels and conduct a performance verification of overall data processing system (DPS) with 10 GB/Shot of data acquisition.

The design activity of JT-60SA (JT-60 Super Advanced) which is remodeled to a superconducting tokamak device has been starting under the JA-EU collaborative ITER-BA project. For the JT-60SA control system, the existing system should be reused as much as possible from the viewpoint of cost-effectiveness. We have just begun to discuss the configuration of the advanced Supervisory Control System (SVCS) including the following systems: (1) ultimately flexible real-time control system, (2) precise timing system enough to clarify cause and effect, and (3) safety shutdown control system. In this report, we present the design study of the JT-60SA SVCS with focusing on these systems.

Updating legacy CAMAC-based data acquisition system for extended pulse duration of JT-60U

JT-60U's diagnostic systems have been using CAMAC systems for their control and data acquisition. But the transient recorders used to store the diagnostic data are rather old and lack in memory expansion. Therefore, for a long pulse discharge of more than 15 seconds, data sampling rate must be reduced to cover the whole discharge period. The acquired data has, however, low time resolution and is sometimes insufficient for detailed analysis. To solve this problem, the transient recorders should be replaced with those having larger memory, but without modification to the existing data processing infrastructure. For this purpose, we have developed a new data acquisition system with SPARC CPU on VMEbus and the associated software, to retain the functionality of CAMAC control. We have applied this system to the existing bolometric diagnostics. In this paper, detail of design will be described.

Fusion research grid is an environment of collaborative researches using a network that connects scientists far apart and let them collaborate effectively over the difference in time and distance in a nuclear fusion research. Fundamental technology of Fusion research grid has been developed at JAEA in the VizGrid project under the e-Japan project at Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Remote research environments of experiments, diagnostics, analyses and communications were developed on Fusion research grid. We have developed prototype systems that include a remote experiment system, a remote diagnostics system, and a remote analysis system. All users can access these systems from anywhere because Fusion research grid does not required closed network like Super SINet to maintain security. The prototype systems were verified in experiments at JT-60U and their availability was confirmed.

In JT-60U the data processing system, providing the data acquisition, producing the diagnostic data base, and communicating with the JT-60U control system. The MSP-ISP was replaced by a new Inter-Shot Processor based on the UNIX-OS of a workstation (UNIX-ISP) in 2005. The performance of UNIX-ISP is 2 times as high as that of the MSP-ISP in a stand-alone test using the data conversion program of the CXRS data. Thus we can expect the reduction of the processing time by the optimization of the total sequence. For the remote experiment, we have developed a system called RMSVR with which we can set discharge parameters from the remote site, and thereby the consistency of input parameters is checked. The high security of the remote experiment system is established by the certification and the encrypted communication based on ITBL. A verification test between a university and JAEA Naka indicates that the system using the HTTPS protocol is suitable for the remote experiment.

JT-60 data processing system (DPS) possesses three-level hierarchy. At the top level of hierarchy is JT-60 inter-shot processor (MSP-ISP), which is a mainframe computer, provides communication with the JT-60 supervisory control system and supervises the internal communication inside the DPS. The middle level of hierarchy has minicomputers and the bottom level of hierarchy has individual diagnostic subsystems, which consist of the CAMAC and VME modules. To meet the demand for advanced diagnostics, the DPS has been progressed in stages from a three-level hierarchy system, which was dependent on the processing power of the MSP-ISP, to a two-level hierarchy system, which is decentralized data processing system (New-DPS) by utilizing the UNIX-based workstations and network technology. This replacement had been accomplished, and the New-DPS has been started to operate in October 2005.

A large tokamak fusion device JT-60 is expected to explore more advanced tokamak discharge scenario towards the ITER and a future power reactor. We believe the following experimental issues are expected to be solved in JT-60. To clarify how to keep a steady-state plasma with high performance, and how to avoid plasma instabilities almost completely. By stimulus of this motivation, several essential development and modifications of plasma control and data acquisition systems have been performed in JT-60. In this report, we discuss the developments to improve the JT-60 plasma control and data acquisition systems. In addition, a future plasma control and data acquisition systems leading to a standard design for a power reactor is envisaged on the basis of the 20-year plasma operation experiences.
