Joule losses in linear THETA-pinches: laser vs magnetic heating

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From fifth symposium on engineering problems of fusion research: Princeton. New Jersey. USA (6 Nov 1973). The dc joule losses per unit length in a THETA -pinch compression coil are calculated and compared to the thermonuclear energy production for two different methods of plasma heating. In the first method, conventional staged THETA -pinch heating is assumed. In the second method, laser heating by long wavelength irradiation from thc ends is assumed. Reactor parameters are calculated. and it is shown that for circulating power fractions to be 20% or less, the plasma radius must be at least a few cm in ... continued below
