Physics of Nuclei and Elementary Particles


The effect of different fuel ratio f3 (the ratio between the 3He and D densities) on D–3He fusion reaction in spherical tokamak has been considered. By solving the zero dimensional particle and power equations numerically the temporal evolution plasma parameters such as the fusion power, synchrotron power and radiation power for different fuel ratios are calculated and compared to each others.
