Abstract

A zero-dimensional energy balance code is developed for the simulation of the approach to ignition of the D-T, D - 3-He and catalyzed D - D fuels (the last two fuels via an initial D-T burning trigger phase). With reference to a device of the OMITRON type, the requirements on linear dimensions, aspect ratio and average plasma "beta" are determined for the achievement of ignition in the indicated fuels according at least to extrapolations of the current understanding of Plasma behaviour.
