Abstract

The necessity of a better plasma current control during the startup phase asks for a toroidal loop voltage modulation obtained with the multi step reduction of the transfer energy resistor in the OH circuit. The paper begins discussing the characteristics of such a modulation; then describes the modifications realized and tested on the power supply and magnet systems to prove the feasibility of such an operation; finally, on the basis of the results obtained, describes the design of the making switch system, based on 100 mm thyristor valve.
