Pyfusion is a modular, object-orientated framework designed to facilitate analysis of data from nuclear fusion research experiments.

The motivation for the development of pyfusion came from the desire to use a common data analysis library across multiple fusion devices, each with different data acquisition systems. Pyfusion abstracts out the data acquisition process, and provides common, easily customisable data objects for most types of data.

The original version of the code is located at

The newer version, still in development, is located at

Pyfusion is used for populating the MHD documentation database (MDDB)
