The advanced tokamak (AT) operating mode, which is the principal focus of the DIII-D tokamak requires highly integrated and complex plasma control. This paper describes progress towards the DIII-D AT mission goal through both improvements in real-time computational hardware and control algorithm capability. A number of device constraints, some unique to DIII-D, and their impact on operational shape and position control are discussed. Some partial solutions are described. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
