Re: RF excited ion sources

The better cable had less loss, same impedance, double shielding.

To ignite I just went up with the power :-) a little.

Did you try something similar?

Re: RF excited ion sources

the ICP ion source works - here with pure nitrogen, About 100W (of 800-1000W).
Impedance matching was a little bit difficult, and I lost a lot of power in the shielded cable. a better cable did the job!

ITER Fusion Reactor & European Fusor Meeting

I've been to France to visit the construction site of ITER (www.iter.org) To keep it short: It is massive! It is gigantic!! Here is one of the pictures I took (view to the reactor pit with the huge clean-room style assembly hall in the background) - but there is much more to tell. I could speak hour...

Re: Tri-Alpha Energy just launched its website

Does anyone have a personal contact to Mr. Michl Binderbauer (president and CTO of Tri-Alpha)? I tried to get in contact with him (as he is also Austrian) - but did not get any feedback.

Re: Archived - European Fusor

@ Dennis: Using oil was an idea – but I try to stay dry as long as possible. The transformer has about 40 kg – so moving it and building a hull around it seems not to be that easy. I once thought about using SF6 instead of oil – but it was not possible to get it anymore. Regarding the diodes: I alre...

Re: Archived - European Fusor

Hi friends of fusion! Within the next weeks I will travel to ITER.org together with some Austrian scientists. We will have a Special tour and also meet some of the guys working at the superconducting components. Pictures will be available in October. Her ist an actual picture of my new CF double cro...

COMSOL simulation of a FUSOR?

Hi!

Has anyone tried to simulate the moving/colliding ions inside a fusor using COMSOL?

BR,
Werner

Re: High Voltage System Approval

It seems that someone else tried the same power supply in 2015: http://fusor.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=10040 The model looks a little bit to small for such a large power. So I think it might be constructed for pulse operation only?? Connecting a mass cable should be done in a professional way –...
