In this chapter we present the basics of nuclear fusion, plasmas, and of magnetic confinement of plasmas in toroidal machines called “tokamaks”. Feedback control plays an importance role in the operation of tokamaks: nowadays all tokamaks are equipped with feedback systems to control certain quantities during experiments. Some of these feedback systems are fundamental to the operation of tokamaks. Tutorial books on nuclear fusion and tokamaks include  and .
