Title (EN) MACHINE LEARNING IN FUSION REACTORS
(FR) APPRENTISSAGE-MACHINE DANS DES RÉACTEURS DE FUSION
Abstract:
(EN) A method of controlling a plasma in a nuclear fusion reactor. The nuclear fusion reactor comprises sensors and plasma control inputs. An initial control model is provided, relating readings of at least a subset of the sensors to control of the plasma control inputs. A control loop is performed, comprising: operating the plasma control inputs in dependence upon the sensors according to the control model; determining correlations between readings of each of the sensors, and/or between readings of the sensors and states of the plasma control inputs; and adjusting the control model based on the determined correlations.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de commande d'un plasma dans un réacteur de fusion nucléaire. Le réacteur de fusion nucléaire comprend des capteurs et des entrées de commande de plasma. Un modèle de commande initial est fourni, concernant des lectures d'au moins un sous-ensemble des capteurs pour commander les entrées de commande de plasma. Une boucle de commande est réalisée, comprenant : le fonctionnement des entrées de commande de plasma en fonction des capteurs selon le modèle de commande ; la détermination de corrélations entre des lectures de chacun des capteurs, et/ou entre des lectures des capteurs et des états des entrées de commande de plasma ; et l'ajustement du modèle de commande sur la base des corrélations déterminées.
