Bayesian probability theory is applied to the model selection problem in describing the energy confinement of a fusion plasma by scaling laws. Here several possible physical scenarios lead to different models with a certain number of free parameters which are used to assign dimensional information to the scaling law. Using a recently assembled database of the W7-AS stellar ator magnetic confinement device a dimensionally constrained analysis is performed. Probabilities for all models and the associated exponents of a power law scaling function are presented.
