Abstract: TP11.00088 : Design Study for the MTF Fusion Demonstration Plant
General Fusion Team
A large scale integrated demonstration of this concept is currently being designed, and construction is planned at the recently announced General Fusion site at the UKAEA Culham Campus.
This poster will discuss the design considerations and plasma physics of the concept, and some of the solutions that have been developed for the unique challenges of this machine.
Parameters for the pre-compression target are scaled from General Fusion’s large-scale CHI-formed spherical tokamak experiment Pi3. Results from this machine will also be shared.
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics.
