Re: Data log of conditioning run

What was your homebrew SCADA made of? It did not look like LABVIEW ...
I used a RVC300 as the PID for changing the gasflow. This works even without manually closing a valve on the way to the Turbo.

Re: my most inspiring books ...

Anyone who allready subscribed to these video teaching lessons at EPFL - EDX?
Content is quite demanding, but it gives a very good view about the details and requirements behind the fusion process.

Re: Archived - European Fusor

OK, here is the solution to my last problem:
The Isolation at the bottom of the HV coils was optimized with this black isolation resin.

Should work now!
I'll keep you informed.

Re: Archived - European Fusor

OK, I had bad luck! Unfortunatly, after just reaching 18 kV, we had an arc between the HV coil and the core. End of the story - I will try to let it repair on monday. Isolation has to be improved or I have to submerge it in oil - what I tried to avoid. Here you see two pics showing the corona discha...

Re: Archived - European Fusor - HV-PS

Hi friends of the high voltage! My new HV-transformator just arrived! Here some data: 30 kV 2 kVA !!! about 60 kg of material ;-) including a thermal circuit breaker adjusted to 75°C. This will create about 42 kV DC at approx. 50 mA - I love it! If it's not enough, I can add another one reaching 84 ...

I used a 10 Liter bottle massivly stuffed with cotton wool - does the same job, much cheaper!

optimum bakeout

Here are some hints regarding heating up the vacuum chamber. To get rid of the water on the inner surface of the chamber, it has to be heated up over 100°C and then pumped out for some time. Due to the attached windows I have to do this very slowly – the window manufacturer wants me to use a rate of...

Re: "Compact Fusion Reactors": lecture at CERN

For me it was nice to see, that Dr. Linden did not mention any kind of transmutation processes.
