Some problems in stellarator reactor design

Abstract:

This thesis examines theoretically the potential of the plasma confinement device known as a Stellarator as a fusion reactor.

Chapter one contains a survey of the requirements for nuclear fusion to take place in a device employing magnetic confincment. The range of reactor parameters which are appropriate is- derived, both from the point of view of plasma physics and on the basis of a rather crude economic model.

Chapter two begins with a discussion of the equilibrium of pla...
