For a steady state operation of JT-60SA, a plasma feedback control using various diagnostic sensor signals plays an essential role. To realize this, Real Time Diagnostic Signals acquisition System, RTDS, which utilizes PC-based real-time OS "INtime", has been under consideration toward JT-60SA project. Moreover, long-time experiments more than 100 seconds will be planned in JT-60SA project. Therefore, real time monitoring will be required as an essential function that displays acquired diagnostic signals on real time during long-time experiment. This function will be also realized by utilizing RTDS.

We report on the event structure and double helicity asymmetry ($$A_{LL}$$) of jet production in longitudinally polarized $$p + p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 GeV. Photons and charged particles were measured by the PHENIX experiment. Event structure was compared with the results from PYTHIA event generator. The production rate of reconstructed jets is satisfactorily reproduced with the next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD calculation. We measured $$A_{LL}$$ = -0.0014 $$pm$$ 0.0037 at the lowest $$P_T$$ bin and -0.0181 $$pm$$ 0.0282 at the highest $$P_T$$ bin. The measured $$A_{LL}$$ is compared with the predictions that assume various $$Delta G(x)$$ distributions.

Transverse momentum distributions and yields for $$pi^{pm}, K^{pm}, p$$, and $$bar{p}$$ in $$p + p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 and 62.4 GeV at midrapidity are measured by the PHENIX experiment at the RHIC. We present the inverse slope parameter, mean transverse momentum, and yield per unit rapidity at each energy, and compare them to other measurements at different $$sqrt{s}$$ collisions. We also present the scaling properties such as $$m_T$$ and $$x_T$$ scaling and discuss the mechanism of the particle production in $$p + p$$ collisions. The measured spectra are compared to next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations.

The PHENIX experiment at RHIC has measured the invariant differential cross section for production of $$K^0_s$$, $$omega$$, $$eta'$$ and $$phi$$ mesons in $$p + p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 GeV. The spectral shapes of all hadron transverse momentum distributions are well described by a Tsallis distribution functional form with only two parameters, $$n$$ and $$T$$, determining the high $$p_T$$ and characterizing the low $$p_T$$ regions for the spectra, respectively. The integrated invariant cross sections calculated from the fitted distributions are found to be consistent with existing measurements and with statistical model predictions.

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

Sato, Minoru; Kiyono, Kimihiro; Oshima, Takayuki; Sakata, Shinya; Konoshima, Shigeru; Ozeki, Takahisa

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.

Real-time measurement system of the ion temperature profile has been developed for the feedback (FB) control of the ion temperature gradient (grad-$$T$$$$_{rm i}$$) with the filter charge exchange recombination spectroscopy (CXRS) system in JT-60U. The rapid analytical scheme without non-linear least square fitting enables us to calculate the ion temperature with four spatial points every 10 ms using a real-time processor system. The FB control experiment of grad-$$T$$$$_{rm i}$$ has been demonstrated in ELMy H-mode plasmas by use of the neutral beam injectors having different deposition profiles as actuators. Grad-$$T$$$$_{rm i}$$ was controlled to the reference value in the ramp-down phase, however, it did not recovered in the ramp-up phase because the internal transport barrier or transport was affected by the ramp-down of grad-$$T$$$$_{rm i}$$. From the transient response analysis of grad-Ti, the increase in the central $$T$$$$_{rm i}$$ using the additional heating was required to recover the deteriorated grad-$$T$$$$_{rm i}$$.

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.

Divertor density measurements using mm-wave interferometer in JT-60U

Takenaga, Hidenobu; Oyama, Naoyuki; Asakura, Nobuyuki; Sakamoto, Yoshiteru; Sakata, Shinya

NIFS-PROC-68, p.62 - 65, 2007/09

A mm-wave interferometer has been developed for divertor density measurements in JT-60U. The measurements performed for several plasma phases indicated the feasibility of the system except for the ELMy H-mode phase. In the ELMy H-mode phase, the signal intensity was significantly reduced probably due to refraction. A sharp drop in the divertor plasma density was found during a transition to the ELM free H-mode phase concomitant with a sharp drop in D$$_{alpha}$$ emission intensity. Low frequency fluctuation of $$sim$$1.5 kHz was observed in the divertor plasma density during the quiescent H-mode phase. Feedback control of the divertor plasma density was successfully demonstrated using the mm-wave interferometer as a real-time monitor and the gas-puffing from the bottoms of the W-shaped divertor as an actuator.

JAEA-Technology 2007-039, 27 Pages, 2007/07


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.
