Operating Principle of the Fusion Device
The main component of the reactor is a fast rotating turbine. The turbine rotates inside a chamber filled with a Deuterium and Tritium gas. The tip of the turbine moves faster than the gas speed of sound. The high speed produces shockwaves in the gas. The shockwaves disperse and hit a cone like holes near the turbine to further compress the gas. The motor is a three phase motor similar to an electric vehicle motor like the one in a Tesla car.
- The turbine can be in any size from 20 inch or 50cm to 30 feet or 10 meters. The power output of one turbine can vary from 10 MW to 500MW. It is possible to combine several turbines in one powerplant.
- The device is small in size and can fit in buildings.
- There is no pollution from the device, it can be placed near cities.
- The device is cost effective in construction, maintenance and fuel.
- The device structure is simple, reliable, and easy to maintain without long downtime.
- The turbine can be switched on almost instantly and can replace gas turbine as backup for solar and wind power stations.
- A major component of the device is an electric motor identical to an electric vehicle motor, it is readily available and will shorten development time and reduce costs
There are two obstacles to overcome to make this idea work:
- The first is to get the high temperature required for fusion. A preferred solution to that is to induce resonance in the gas by shaping the turbines and the surrounding walls.
- The second problem is overheating of the turbine and cone ring. This can be solved by water cooling system or liquid nitrogen cooling system, integrated in a mesh of pipes inside the cone ring and turbine.
