A current limit avoidance (CLA) system has been proposed to avoid current saturation in the poloidal field (PF) coils of the Joint European Torus tokamak when the eXtreme Shape Controller is used to control the plasma shape. CLA uses the redundancy of the PF coil system to automatically obtain almost the same plasma shape with a different combination of control currents. This paper describes the set of graphic tools that has been recently developed to aid the design of the CLA parameters by nonexpert users.
