NSTX-U Digital Coil Protection System Software Detailed Design

This system can serve as a protection system for anything that can be modeled as a system of equations that must stay within limits.  Currently, DCPS calculates 1200 equations every 200 microseconds, but this is easily expanded to much higher amounts in shorter times.  The inputs can be any combination of signals, digital, analog, or even packets over Ethernet.  The system is designed to be flexible enough to run in any configuration
