The Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) algorithm behaviour, when applied to a set of Mirnov coils not equispaced and/or in a reduced number, or for a short time sampling window, is studied, with a view to applying it to MHD mode analysis and identification for the Frascati Tokamak Upgrade (FTU) machine, both off line and in real time, aiming at instability control and suppression by EC power injection. Threshold values for proper operation as regards coil number, coil separation and time sampling window length are obtained.
