Maximizing radiofrequency heating on FTU via extremum seeking: parameter selection and tuning

In this paper we illustrate the use of a novel extremum seeking scheme recently proposed in (Astolfi et al., CDC2008) to minimize the percentage of reflected power on the Frascati Tokamak Upgrade (FTU) experimental facility during radiofrequency heating. The paper contains an explanation of how the parameters of the extremum seeking scheme should be selected to induce desirable closed-loop performance. The effectiveness of the tuning procedure will be shown via simulations and, if available, also experiments.
