In ITER, plant Instrumentation & Control (I&C) components are exposed to harsh environment. Hence I&C for plant system is one of the most challenging requirements to fulfil the ITER demands. IN DA is responsible for the delivery of several diagnostics systems including (1) X-Ray Crystal Spectroscopy (XRCS) edge & survey to measure the plasma impurity for machine protection and basic control as well as well measure the profile of plasma parameters for advanced control. (2). Electron Cyclotron Emission (ECE) – to provide temperature profile, fluctuation and the power due to emission in 70 -1000 GHz for ITER plasma and (3). UP#09 for housing the diagnostics in the port plug and integration with rest of its system. (4) CXRS-pedestal – to provide the ion velocity and temperature of plasma for advanced control & physics studies. Out of these the XRCS diagnostics and UP#09 are classified as protection important components (PIC) and hence need special attention to achieve safety functions. ITER plant I&C systems are being developed according to industrial systems engineering standards, and compliant with the standards, specifications and interfaces defined in the Plant Control Design Handbook (PCDH) and its satellite documents. Enterprise Architect (EA) is the tool is to be used for diagnostic I&C documentation. EA helps to trace high-level specifications for the analysis, design, implementation, test and maintenance models using Unified Modelling Language (UML), SysML and other open standards. I&C deliverable documents are being developed according to the ITER diagnostic guidelines. This paper describes the detailed preliminary design of plant I&C for diagnostics system a) Operation procedures, b) functional analysis including variable definition, c) hardware architecture and signal d) cubicle configuration and e) the plant system operating state machine (PSOS) for automation including the mapping to Common Operation States (COS).
