Plasma position control for DEMO reactor has been investigated using numerical simulation, which consists of plasma equilibrium, eddy current and active feedback control analyses. The stabilization effect of in-vessel components, the influence on the magnetic detector and the power of active feedback control coils are evaluated. Especially, the influence of breeding blanket modules on plasma position control is shown in this paper.
