HBM’s Genesis Highspeed systems and Perception data-acquisition software are at the heart of fusion plasma experiments that could pave the way for energy production in future fusion power stations.

The long-term experiments by the Institute for Plasma Research at Stuttgart University are researching and analysing the behaviour of plasma dynamics.

A particular focus of the experiments is to use fusion plasma for energy and particle transport and HBM’s data acquisition equipment and analysis software is being used to investigate ways of minimising the complex plasma turbulences so they can be used for energy production.

Genesis Highspeed data acquisition system GEN 16t is being used in combination with 128 sensors to acquire measurement signals from connected channels and then analyse them.

The GEN 16t system enables reliable data and transient data acquisition at high speeds and large numbers of channels, even when very high sampling rates of up to 1MS/s are needed.

The measured data is then analysed and evaluated with perception software, which enables the rapid visualisation and checking of large data volumes.

Further interpretation of the data is then implemented via computer simulations that have been developed by the Institute for Plasma Research.

The measurement data can be transferred from Perception via an interface to the Institute’s own software and processed further for this purpose.

The scalability of the GEN DAQ system also makes it possible for the Institute for Plasma Research to expand the experiment and integrate additional sensors and measurement channels in the system because GEN 16t can support up to 1080 measurement channels.
