The possibility of burn control by hydrogen feeding was investigated for tokamak plasma under a self-sustained condition. When fusion power shifts higher than a target value, increases in hydrogen feed rate can lower the power by a reduction in ion temperature due to enhanced hydrogen density. Conversely, when the power shifts lower than the target, stopping hydrogen feeding and exhaust can increase the power through an increase in ion temperature due to reduced hydrogen density. Especially in the latter, in order to enlarge the recoverable magnitude of power shift, it is necessary to select a self-sustained condition having the highest hydrogen density. The results confirmed the possibility of burn control by hydrogen feeding.
