Title: The Wendelstein 7-X trim coil system commissioning and first operational results

Here, the magnet system of the stellarator fusion device Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) is composed of three different groups of coil systems. The main magnetic field is created by a superconducting magnet system that is accompanied by two sets of normal conducting coil groups, the Control Coils inside the plasma vessel and the Trim Coils (TC) positioned outside of the cryostat.
