Abstract

A new control system for capacitive energy storage with a rated energy content as high as 16 MJ is described. Capacitive energy storage has been used since 1987 to supply power for the pulsed magnetic system of the GOL-3 multiple-mirror trap. It has an operating voltage of 6 kV and consists of 6000 IK-6-150 capacitors that are located in six remote rooms together with the necessary infrastructure. The system for control and data acquisition was built using Arduino microcontroller boards operating as a distributed network of remote servers. The client part of the control system uses a personal computer with a standard configuration; communication with remote servers is effected by the TCP/IP protocol. The control system was put into regular operation at devices of the GOL-3 facility in the early 2016.
