A new advanced plasma control system for the TCV Tokamak has been implemented based on an in-house developed high performance DSPs-based VME system, specially designed for real-time plasma control and event detection on fusion experiments. This paper describes the software architecture of the digital system as well as the integration of the physicists control algorithms in the DSPs software. The integration conditions on the TCV control system and the first results of the real-time control operation are also presented. Finally, a critical analysis of the system performance and the experimental operation of TCV APCS is discussed.
