So called fusion Plasma Control

Post by Dennis P Brown »

Well, here Dr. Hossenfelder really did a particle physicist take. I mean, some AI modeling that does some simulated work and seems to track the real thing and maybe 80% to at best 98%. The elephant in the room is no one has any idea how to incorporate any such correction system into a tokamak. My other objections to this nonsense are too extensive to post but she obviously did not do her homework. Oh well. This is a killer problem for tokamaks (not really so much for stellarator's) and glad they are looking at it. But this is likely more in line with: The plasma control will be fixed really soon, just not in anyone's lifetime.
