Novel Techniques to Rank Magnetic Sensors in Tokamak Reactors

M. Versaci, F.C. Morabito, and S. Calcagno (Italy)



In this paper we present a novel approach to rank the number and the position of magnetic sensors in tokamak reactors. In particular, two different kinds of reactors are considered: ASDEX-Upgrade Configuration and ITER machines. In order to take into account non-linear effects in the input-output space, we use the mutual information and fuzzy entropy concepts. Concerning ASDEX Upgrade machines, this technique is suitable for on-line applications since it reduces the computational complexity; as for ITER reactors (future applications) a proper rank of the sensors allows to determine their optimal location.
