Description

Safety factor profile control via active feedback control of electron temperature profile during a plasma current ramp-up phase of a DEMO reactor is investigated to minimize the magnetic flux consumption of a central solenoid (CS) for wide range of *q* profiles. It is shown that *q* profiles with positive, weak and reversed magnetic shear can be obtained with less than half of the empirical estimation of the resistive flux consumption ($\Psi_{\rm res}$). For the optimization of time dependent feedback gain, we introduced a reinforcement learning technique. This enables to follow a rapid change in the target profile of the electron temperature by changing the feedback gain adaptively. With this adaptive feature of the reinforcement learning, we also confirmed that $T_{\rm e}$ profile can be controlled in the plasma simulation with various thermal transport property by one control system.
