Abstract

A zero-dimensional energy balance code is developed for the simulation of the approach to ignition of the D- 3-He and catalyzed D-D fuels via an initial D-T burning trigger phase. With reference to compact, high field tokamaks of the OMITRON type, the requirements in linear dimensions, aspect ratio and average plasma beta are determined for the achievement of ignition in the advanced fuels indicated above + according at least to extrapolation of the current understanding of plasma behaviour.
