Abstract / Description:ASDEX upgrade investigates the integration of confinement, stability and exhaust issues into an operating scenario for ITER and a future fusion reactor. Since commissioned in 1990 the systems used to feedback control plasma position and shape as well as performance have continuously been enhanced. To overcome performance limitations and improve connectivity and steady state capability, a new plasma control system is being implemented. For the new system, adequate and reliable communication mechanisms are essential to integrate the realtime discharge control and data acquisition. We present communication methods and the process organisation of the new system and show that the new concept allows easy performance scaling. We demonstrate how existing periphery and new realtime diagnostics interface to control applications. This facilitates the realisation of novel and sophisticated control tasks combining multiple diagnostics and actuators for common physical goals.
