Abstract

In this paper we presented a simplified technique for the determination of plasma displacement based on poloidal flux measurement in IR-T1 tokamak. This instrument consists of a two semicircle loops which installed toroidally on inner and outer sides of tokamak chamber and connected with each other. Really, this instrument detects the difference of poloidal flux on High Field Side (HFS) and Low Field Side (LFS), which we needed in calculating of the Shafranov shift. Main benefit of our proposed instrument is its simplicity. Based on this technique we measured the plasma position, and to compare the result obtained using this technique, array of four magnetic probes are also designed, constructed and installed on outer surface of the IR-T1 tokamak and plasma position obtained from them. Results are in good agreement with each other.
