RFX-mod2 is an upgrade of RFX-mod that will use a modified shell and mechanical structure in order to enhance plasma-shell proximity and therefore to improve plasma control.

Abstract

RFX-mod2 is an upgrade of RFX-mod that will use a modified shell and mechanical structure in order to enhance plasma-shell proximity and therefore to improve plasma control. The Control and Data Acquisition System for most of the plant systems and diagnostics previously used in RFX-mod will be refurbished, while others will be completely re-built. The most important component that will be completely renewed is the ElectroMagnetic probe (EM) data acquisition system, where a new architecture based on XILINX Zynq FPGA will be used to carry out at the same time both high-speed data acquisition and resampled data streaming for active plasma control. The use of MDSplus will be retained in RFX-mod2, while the MARTe framework used for real-time plasma control will be replaced by MARTe2, a new framework developed under strict software quality standards. Plant control in RFX-mod2 will be supervised by WinCC-OA, replacing the previous FactoryLink SCADA systems. Older plant systems such as vacuum control based on outdated S5 PLCs will be updated and will use OPC-UA for communication with the supervisory control system.
