Optimization and design of nuclear fusion devices is a complex task with large computational requirements. The complexity is defined by the number of parameters involved in every single possible optimization function that focuses on the different aspects of plasma confinement. This paper presents a possible optimization of an existing nuclear fusion device. The optimization process is carried out by a parallel algorithm specifically designed to work with large scale problems. While the focus of the paper is fusion, the approach used can be applied to any other large scale problem. We have run our experiments on an HPC cluster. The results show the validity of our approach and how complex scientific problems can benefit from the outcomes of this work.
